Deep Creek Lake, Montgomery County

Fished the lake today from 3pm to 6pm..........INSANE
 
When I got there I saw about a dozen folks......spoke with 3 as they were leaving and I was told it was slow and I should have been there yesterday.....I had the lake almost to myself within' half an hour or so.......
 
I didn't drill a hole, just used what was there........I turned on the SHOWDOWN digital fish finder and got to work.....THIS MACHINE IS AWESOME
 
I caught fish for pretty much the entire 3 hours.......lots of gills, lots of crappie and one trout
 
They were on smaller jigs tipped with one or two spikes.......as darkness came, I switched to a jig and really started to nail the crappie........I even caught fish in total darkness.......thanks to the SHOWDOWN......that was the only light on the ice......lots of suspended fish..........
 
the Fiskas tungsten jigs are SWEET.......been using a small 3mm (I think) blue one tipped with a spike....the smaller the meal the better
 
water depth ranged from 6.8 feet to 10
 
ice thickness was about 5 inches

    Not really........I have never done well near where the creek comes in............behind the Tennis Courts is usually good--try to locate the creek channel...........out from the beach area is usually good.....
     
    I have seen folks catch fish all over the lake, with exception to where the creek comes in......
