This is a lake where I fish bass tournaments with a good friend of mine. It's our second year fishing this tournament division as a team. The lake is man made and was built eleven or twelve years ago strictly for the purpose of fishing. There is no swimming, skiing, or personal watercraft allowed on the lake. Artificial structures were put in place for the fish prior to the damming and all of the trees were left, so there is a lot of standing timber in the water. The lake is becoming known for having big bass and the state has strict size and bag limits in place. It's located in a rural part of the state and is surrounded primarily by farm land.
The lake is also home to bald eagles, herons, egrets, waterfowl, and a wide variety of smaller birds.
