I'll just be heading past it, to work that is. Good luck if you make it out. Lots of fish stacked up in there. Easy to find. Hard to get to bite last weekend.

Ended up with 1, slow day, trolled everything we had at em. We saw 4-5 otherboats 1 guy had 2, everyone else had 1 or none.

one thing I did find out is that my cover leaks. let about 30 gallons of rain water drain out at the ramp when i pulled the plug, took about 15 min. to let all the water drain out. Good thing my boat was banded.

good news, water level is way up, only about 10' or so left to be back at normal depth. water was a little murky in the south end and was fairly clear down by the dam.

Reel Deal - thanks for the report, glad to hear the lake is filling up. Should just be a matter of time before the fishing picks up. Putting one in the boat is better than none - what's the old saying? A lousy day fishing is still better than a good day at work!

Yea I got only one dfg planter- isnt that what yall call them? Haha. Got on the water about 6:30 started in south end fished it for awhile then pretty much fished all over, im not good at finding fish. But I hooked up in the narrows at about 11 it was funny because I took a little nap with my pole resting on my chest and i woke up to it tapping my shoulder haha, not a bad way to wake up at all!! My friend said the look on my face was hillarious.
Slow day didn't get no other bites. Is because the water clarity or???

I didn't see your boat description on here last night but I think I seen u today..Were u with a woman reel deal?

I always think the skunk is off the boat and the black cat is dead when I catch the first one.

Agree with Fishmaster - they're holding out until the fest!!
