I typically fish the eastern shoreline pretty much the whole time when I'm there as it is covered with lily pads (which I love fishing) and bushes that run about 5 feet into the water. It's a great place to cast right next to the bushes and pull out tons of bass. There is a little cove that is about 2 feet deep the whole way in (about 100 feet) that is loaded with fish early in the season. As it gets hotter, they go a little deeper, just on the edge of the cove.
I spent about 9 hours out on the lake one day and went around the entire shoreline of the lake twice. I caught fish on the southern, eastern, and western shores. The northern shore was clear of any weeds or lilly pads and was very hard to fish. There are a couple docks you can work as well that I would've put more time into had the other parts of the lake not been producing.
The lake gets pretty deep in the middle, which is where I assume the fish headed after the spawn period. If I was to attack the middle, I'd go in with a deep diving crank bait or a lipless crank bait and burn it over the top of them. As I update this, I'm actually planning in trip out there 3 days from now so hoping all of this info still holds. We'll see!
