I have fished Bode lake since I was a kid, 20+ years now. It has changed a lot, there used to be limited shoreline with lots of bushery to allow fish some refuge from people. The "southern" lake is clear with a deep pool by the far south east corner. The northern lake is fed by Poplar Creek which dumps into the Fox. From there Northern Pike have made their way into Bode. Rare, but they are in there. The north lake is murky with far less visibility and a lot less easily accessible shoreline as well from the last time I was there. If you hike up north along the creek you will find beaver dams which make some cool pools some of which hold decent sized largemouth bass. I did well in the creek with pumpkin colored tube jigs back in the day. The old bridge supports on the creek have some rocks in between and when the water is the right level bass hang there too. Right now the creek is quite blown out though. Good luck and post up any catches from there I would love to see fish still hanging out!
