Amazing lake
Avatar of jgustavson5681

I’ve lived on candlewood for the summer every year of my life and have gotten very passionate about my fishing because of this. There are a bunch of big smallies and I’ve caught most on a 1/8 oz shaker head and yum finesse worm. Drop shot works well too with the deep waters. Big largemouth will hit a big worm too. Overall a great lake👍👍

Good Bass Pond but NO FISHING!
Avatar of richpoinvil

I caught a bass there yesterday and just after that, a person that said they own the lake and the parking lot drove up and told me I cannot fish there. I think he owns the Lakeside Diner. He was not rude but It was a short conversation because he wanted to keep his distance (COVID). He said he didn't want any fish taken from the lake. I said I only catch and release. He still said no. BTW, there are 2 no fishing signs that cannot be seen after the late spring bushes grow in. The shoreline on the South Side of the Lake is pretty littered. Many seem to stop by to smoke pot in their cars.
