I will be camping on Eastern Lake July 10-13 and taking my Kayak. Has anybody fished there lately and did you have any success? What is the best bet for bait or are artificial baits better? Any good bait shops in the area?

It is spitting distance from me. I have never made a real serious attempt to fish it other than letting my boy beat the banks. We have caught some small bass. Sometimes in the mornings on the way to work I will see something crashing bait, my guess would be jacks and lady fish. The areas near the campsites are more brackish than near the beach. Yellowfin is about 150yds as the crow flies from the camping spots but you will have to drive all the way around back out to 98 down 30A to get there.

There are several other dune lakes close by so you will have other options if Eastern isnt holding any fish.
