Dropped the son's vehicle at the shop for what was supposed to be a few hour check-up and we headed over to Goodwin to kill some time. On the water by about 9:00AM. Figuring that the SMB were getting close to spawn mode (or already there) we hit some of the shallower flats adjacent to rocky areas.
We managed to get a "bite" of sorts going for a 2 hour window and CPR'd about 1/2 dozen Smallies to 2 pounds and another 1/2 dozen good hits that didn't stick. There was one heavy fish that didn't make it to the boat.
I was dragging a hula grub near the rock piles, but my son hit the jackpot with a soft 'gill swimbait--they absolutely hated that thing! Turns out the vehicle wasn't ready until 3 PM so we had more time on the water than we thought we would. Most action was between 10A and 1P.
Wx sunny with either no wind, or just a slight breeze...very uncommon for this lake, but appreciated. Water temp hovering right at 60 degrees.
