I just spent a day on Lake Cypress with another Buckeye friend of mine telling stories on one another, catching more fish than one can imagine and just having fun. I wish I could tell you all of the stories, but if I did this might be my last article.
If you don't know where Lake Cypress is, it is an easy drive, about 70 miles away.
It's a great lake to fish. There's some big bass biting and a lot of smaller ones. Although, they didn't know they were supposed to bite when we were there. Jerry, my Buckeye friend, had a decent day catching more than I and that made his day. His biggest was more than three pounds.
The lake water was on the dirty side with all the wind that we've been having. Plus, we were fishing on a full moon, and really not paying too much attention as to what we were doing because we were having lots of fun!
The next time we go out on the water, we will be more alert. To get to Lake Cypress, take Rt. 60 to Yeehaw Juction, turn right at the traffic light (Rt.441) to Rt.523 (Canoe Creek Road) in Kenansville, turn left, go approximately 40 miles until you see a large sign on the left side of the road, then turn left to Lake Cypress, just keep going on that road and you will run into it. If you're going bass fishing, my suggestion would be to take some Senkos, 10-inch Red Shad Worms, and Flukes. The east shore line has been producing some fish.
They do have a good size air- boat facility there so keep a watchful eye, a good bunch of guys running the boats.
Have fun, be safe and go catch a big'un !
