The wildlife biologist at Bragg told us at one of the FAAN meeting that Mott lake was very poor for fishing. It is basically a bath tub , no structure . It does not hold any real numbers of game fish. There are some but very few when they did their shocking and cout. Boundry line, and simons have good bass and both are acessaable with a john boat. Smith Llake also has good bass fishing just has alot of Hydrilla.
