They do plant but from what i've seen it's mostly dfg dinkers. There may be some nice hold overs in there.

There is a ton of bass in that lake. Swimbaits (shad, bluegill, trout). Jigs (peanutbutter/jelly, black/red, green pumpkin). Lipless crankbaits (shad, bluegill, crawdad) patterns work well.

You might come a cross a spottted bass and some smallies too.
