Buzzbaits work well in early morning and sunset hours. There are good areas of riprap that always hold bass. Big bass are consistently caught here. There are walleye, crappie, bluegill, channel cat, bullhead, and alewife as well. Finesse approach works well and you can never go wrong with a square bill or jackhammer fanning the shoreline areas.

Big bass caught at Burchard on the Neko rig.
