I caught 15 nice bluegill and shellcracker on a green chartreuse tube jig tipped with a meal worm fished under a float about 4 feet. Fish were caught by downed trees and logs in deeper water. I caught one nice crappie about 12 inches. Warm weather had them tight to cover on the banks this week.

Here is a Tip the City of Lewisburg should start Charging a $5.00 all day fee for anyone who fishes there to pay for maintaince and up keep.
How about a dollar for walking on the walking trail or even the view?
In that way they could drain the lake and restock it with bigger fish.

Do you really understand how much this City and County owe they need to cut back on all uncessary spending!

All this free so called recreation stuff has got to stop till the Major City and County Debts are paid the taxpayers can not afford for people to use more public, funds and funding for all kinds of sports, walking trails, Golf, exercise, and ball it is time for all who use these public facilities too pay more than their part and others to pay less.
So in doing that all maintained, up keep and operations should be funded by their use and not by taxpayer abuse.
I am for all sports that the so called Sports fund themselves, cut the property taxes for all and let the sports nuts bawl.
Sports are like an addiction, similar to drugs, the sports addict uses the politician to supply their habit, and wants the Taxpayer to pay for it while they get a high and play, or sit and fish all day.

I'd be willing to support a 3 dollar day pass for people 16 and up or a 30 dollar annual permit to fish in New Lake. The funds should go to the City.

However, the money should be "earmarked" to be used to stock fish annually and make road repairs by the City. The potholes have become really bad again from the weather and traffic around the Lake.

We all have to face the fact that nothing is FREE if you want to have good facilities and to maintain property and a lake it costs money. I know the fishing and roads would be greatly improved with a 5000 dollar annual budget. It would be the best money the City ever spent for the people and a daily use or annual permit could provide the funds to do it. While they do stock the lake each year with catfish the numbers are very low and the fish are caught out in a few weeks. They stock less than 500 catfish annually for a lake around 25 acres. The correct stocking rate would be 100/acre which would be around 2500. The fish would need to be 8 to 12 inches to prevent predation from bass.

They have a daily permit or annual permit over in Shelbyville on Bedford Lake. It't really a great idea.

People would complain about having to pay to buy a permit because it's always been free but just look at how much better the fishing would be if they had 5000 a year to stock fish. You could purchase the permit from the drive up window downtown.

I've counted over 200 people in a day on the Lake this past summer during peak spawning periods so anyone knows it could easily create at least 5,000 dollars a yr in a budget. Probably even more...

Just a thought so please don't attack me on this idea. Just think of the lake loaded with fish every spring from a fall stocking.. NICE!!

Catching most fish right now in 8 to 10 feet of water on heavy cover off the banks. I've been fishing jigs and plastic worm for bass.

If you want to fish for panfish such as crappie, bluegill, and shellcracker try minnows about 4 feet under a float off of heavy cover (logs, brush,and fish attractors). I caught a few crappie and big bluegill the last couple of weeks in this cold weather using that technique. A small tube jig or popeye jig tipped with a mealworm and fished under a float 4 to 5 feet produced a few fish as well.

Deep water Kentucky rig using minnows is good if u have a boat. I use two hooks about 16 inches apart and a 3/4 ounce bell sinker on the bottom of the rig. Fish the open deep water and drift. Some days this can be productive with crappie if the barometer is right. It seems after rains the fish turn on a little more..

Hope that helps.

Good fishing!

Rainbow, I release the bass I catch back into the lake. I release the crappie, bluegill and shellcracker into Lake Crisco.
