I recently purchased a home about .5 miles from the launch on Struble. The couple times I've driven by and stopped at the dock it seems way less pressured than Marsh Creek which is where I typically fish (even at lunch during work days). What can I expect as far as lure selection when targeting bass? Stay with a soft plastic senko or crawfish? Any particular structure types they like to hold in: grass vs weeds vs tree limbs.
I'm sure I'll figure alot out via trial an error, a head start would be nice.
Also, if anyone wants a fishing partner for the lake let me know. Being that close I can likely run up anytime after 9-5.

I live near Struble too but have not fished it lately.
Here is some information for you: the lake runs shallow to the right of the ramp (you can wade really far out in this section). The water in Struble is almost always stained so bright colors or black/blue seem to work best. I have had luck with wacky rigged stickworms and texas rigged flukes.
Years ago, when I first moved to the area, Struble was a crappie producing machine. Unfortunatley, the bucket brigade fished out many of the crappie. They are still in the lake but not as plentiful.
As for bass, they are in the lake too. I have caught some from the bank as well as from my boat. In June,during the evening, they seem to relate to the banks on the right side of the lake (to the left of the ramp). At least, that is where I seem to have some luck.
