Any help

I have never had the pleasure of fishing Miller's lake before. Me and a buddy are gonna head that way on Saturday despite the predicted weather. Any tips for luring ol' Bucket Mouths would be greatly appreciated. And can you run anywhere in the lake of is it on a bouy system?

You can run anywhere on Millers Lake. There are no stumps that i know of. The lake is pretty much open and shallow with quite a few tupelo gum trees. Average depth is only about 3 feet, but don't let that scare you off. There are a bunch of big bass in that lake. There is also rozos and buttonwoods that line the banks. Fish the trees and duck blinds with soft plastics and you should be able to catch a few. Where are you coming from?

Thanks
I appreciate that man. I'm coming from Carencro. I have fished Chicot all my life I just never got over to Miller's lake. I figured it was time to give it a shot.

Big rice field lake!!!
It is shallow, as stated before, 3-4' deep everywhere. Not many stumps, lots of trees, duck blinds, buck brush, camps, etc...it is hard to believe that lake produces as many big bass as it does. The last tournaments held there the past few weekends had awesome results, an 8# plus for big bass last weekend. Good Luck!!!

Sounds like a winner
Thanks guys. It certainly doesn't bother me that it's shallow. Definately fits my style. Looking forward to it big time. just hope the sky doesn't fall out!

water clear?
Are the fish on beds yet? With the rain this weekend will it be clear enough to sight fish? Never done much sight fishing in Millers. Want to catch a big one, take a picture, and turn her back. If the water is not clear I do not want to make the drive from lake charle. Thanks.

We went Sat and fished til about 2. You definately won't be doing any site fishing but the water is pretty and green. We caught 4 nice fish but it was slow and everyone else we talked to had scratched.

Yea i forgot to tell you that the water was green due to what they say is an algea bloom. It normally happens later in the year but for some reason it happened earlier this year. Glad to hear you caught some. I hope to go there this week after work, probably wednesday. I'm looking for a big un. I caught one right a 7 lbs. last Sunday but haven't gotte to go back since. How did you catch the ones you caught?

I forgot to tell you that normally, without the algea blooms, the water is crystal clear. You can sight fish easily when the wind isn't too bad. I have caught a lot off the beds there but not this year.

Docks
We Were fishing on the back side of that front and struck out til around noon fishing the trees. We started flipping the docks by the launch and that's where we caught all 4. Our biggest was just shy of 4 lbs. but all seemed to have spawned already.
