Yeah, you really need a boat at Skinner, even then, unless you know the lake, it can be tough.

I've fished there a bunch, mostly before the water level went up.

If you happen to rent a boat, go to the far end of the lake where all the toolies are ( they may be submerged at this point, cast a Weedless t rig worm or craw type bait, don't go real light, as you need enough weight to get the bait down if you cast about a foot or so into them. 

Otherwise, just pitch right to the edge of them. Also, if possible, do not go on the weekends..lol

No, only certain areas are for shore fishing.

YA know, I forgot to say that Skinner isn't the best lake for summer bass fishing, from a boat or shore.

If you want to stay on shore, lake Hodges is Way better, and has more shore access.

I havent fished skinner for a while. I was thinking summer might be better with all those reeds. I have located a spot with plenty of big bass blowing up on topwater, but they just arent interested in any sort of lure. My guess is the ecosystem is so good, they have no interest in an artificial lure. Bait fishing might be the way to go at skinner. There is so much water down there in san diego I need to go for sure. I am actually getting the chance to fish lake san marcos next month! I plan to rent a boat.
