Bartlett Lake - Carefree, AZ (Maricopa County)

Henry L. shows some crappie he caught at Bartlett Lake last week. "From the lake to the table, cooking it the authentic Chinese way for fresh fish brings out the sweetness and freshness in the crappies," he said.

At Bartlett Lake, angler Gary Senft reported some tough fishing on 12/14 when out on a cold, clear morning the day after a storm. They did catch eight nice bass on some micro-jigs and 5150 worms. No luck when throwing crankbaits and spinnerbaits. The fish weren't deep (18-21 feet), they just didn’t want to bite. See a video with his report at Gary has a number of good videos on his YouTube channel
