My first time ever at RS was last year about this time with some friends fishing off the north docks for trout. First thing I did was tied on a crawdad pattern rattletrap and they thought I was crazy. First cast nailed a nice 3lb LM. Guess who was having the last laugh
I have seen big bass swimming around on the north side of the lake, fishing off the docks. Of course, if you can see them they usually don't bite. I have caught a few smaller ones, but the big guys are in there.
