First cast at about 7AM. Started near the north side along the west bank. Water is ripply with a constant breeze. Figured swimbait and jerk and possible spinnerbait will be my best bet. Got a chase from a small SMB on my swimbait. Spotted a pair of LMB in the ~2# range just cruising together on the inside weed edge. After about a hr with no hookup, i motored across and test the east bank.

A few casts with my jerk and I set the hook on what feels like a monster. Flashes and see it's a LMB but not as big as it feels due to the way it's hooked across it's face. Scoop it up @ 2.95#. Worked that little area fighting the breeze with nothing else to show for it. So I start heading south.

Ran my swimbait across the front of a dock and BAM! Up comes a SMB. Long and skinny. Almost 19" and only 2.51#.

Continue along and get another #er or so SMB and LMB on the swimbait. Go back to working the jerk and whoa, I started to light them up. Next few hours, i think I caught over 20 SMB on the jerk. Several more in the 2# range, but nothing big enough to bother weighing. Majority were in the 1# range. A few little bit smaller.

Tried to track down my lost jerkbait from last week, but all I found was ~1.5# SMB in the area.

It was overcast the majority of the time there. The sun started poking back out at about 11:30-11:45AM and the bite started to slow down. Stil caught a couple more but called it good at about 12:15PM.


Met Steve and his wife on the water. Nice to officially meet you Steve.

Awesome report! I’ll be out tomorrow. I was thinking about drop shotting docks and searching for beds after this weather.... now reconsidering

You know what, I was getting tired of throwing and jerking that jerkbait. My arm is a bit sore right now from all that LOL.
Thinking of heading out there tomorrow again, but we'll see how my arm feels in the morning.

Saw the Mean Green today when I headed in. You must've had a late start bc I'm pretty sure it wasn't there when I got there in the morning.

Ya, I had things to do. Figured I wouldn't even fish today, but did anyway. First cast was about 10:30. Left about 3pm. Took an hour to drive the 20 minutes home.
