Gonna be headed to Gillihan lake this weekend. Would like to do some bass fishing but not very familiar with the lake. Any tips would be appreciated.

I have caught some 25-30# sacks of blacks, but i have never caught a smallie in it(i know they live in there, i catchem wade fishin way up river). Throw a 1 oz firecracker spinnerbait out in the timber on channel swings, i also catchem flippin a biggo jig'n'frog in the wintertime on the swings and ledges. Throw a ol monster worm too. Good luck!

Appreciate the info. I have done some wading below the lake but not much above it. Love fly fishing for the goggle eyes

I had no clue there was smallmouth in there. I fish for crappie down there just about every spring. There is some nice bass in there to. I would start with a double willow leaf spinnerbait and crankbait then go to a jig or big bulky soft plastic Texas rigged
