Who would suspect that in this plain as day lake with a max depth of 20 feet, that there would be such large fish here! I have witnessed firsthand a 50 lb flathead caught and released in this lake. I wouldn’t doubt that there is a fish double that size in here. No bs, phantom has giant fish no doubt but with Kirby, it’s a real challenge with the rocks and things to get hung up on. You really have to fish here and learn what works and what doesn’t. So many places for fish to hide and cut the angler off. It’s definitely not a beginner lake for bank fishing, because of how much tackle you’ll loose if you’re not careful.

Found this lake on google maps. Came to fish for anything that would bite. 2nd cast caught me my PB bass. Nice Channel cat hit my bottom rig. And all this with 20mph winds. Can’t wait for a calmer day to come slay. Love the fact that no motors larger than a trolling are allowed. We will be back often to bank fish and kayak fish! This lake is very picked up of trash and debris. A true gem! I’ll be back at least weekly!
