I have been fishing this lake for a few years now in an actual bass boat with the ability to realky cover some water and in the summer, when I actually get to do the majority of my fishing, I have many days I don’t even get a bite. I see other guys bringing back 8-15 lbs on a semi-regular basis, but I have yet to really figure this lake out. I have been using all the tactics I know to use. I can find the bait fish. I fish the wind/ “current” and points. I can find bass on my electronics, I fish ledges, brushpiles, flip floating docks and buck brush, work the flats, and find where the fish appear to be holding in a particular area. I have tried everything I know to try and still may zero or only catch a few after a 5-6 hour outing. Many like to call it the “Dead Sea” but after catching my PB spot and catching 20+ small mouth in the prespawn, I can tell you that’s not the case. I see a lot of bass suspended under bait in trees or out in 25-60 ft of water and every once in a while I can get one to bite but they are tough to catch. When I do catch one it’s usually loaded with big shad and fat. I can’t inagine this is the winning ticket. Brushpiles are what everyone talks about, but the only piles I’ve found are all “community holes.” They rarely produce more than one good keeper for me. Any help in helping how to figure this lake out?

I don't think greers is the dead sea. It's just different. When I was there in May I ran up the middle fork and caught mine cranking a dt16. My theory then having never been there was find skinny water and cover it. Right now I'd probably find some main lake humps down past the narrows in 15-25 foot and dropshot. I have 2 trains of thoughts though. A) is if you find the baitfish there's usually fish you just gotta figure out how to make em bite. B.) there's usually fish up the tributaries in schools, you just gotta figure out the spot that has a difference in depth or bottom makeup that'll hold em.

I’ve fished a hump on the south side in the past and it was hit or miss, but honestly, I probably gave it up too soon. Today I hit some brushpiles up middle fork and found a couple 15-16 inchers. It seemed like they would only bite in the initial fall or if I just let it set for a couple minutes .... fishing really slow. Overall I’ve pribably fished the big water on the south side more than anything. Still having trouble catching more than just a couple keepers or catching anything over 2lbs. Any good advice for finding more productive water or ways to get bit is appreciated!

Do you ever go up the river well past the 16 bridge? That's pretty much the only place I can consistently catch fish on that body of water.
