Went out yesterday,wt 74f,stained

Horny toad took one keeper,short smallmouth on flukes and strike king square bill crankbaits-chart/sexy shad.

Found some topped grass just south of paris landing-look in the cuts.Tuff bite,while water is starting to cool was even less chasing than week prior,part im sure due to the color,some occuring but out of sight,visability was about ten inches.What was occuring in the bays was mostly chasinbg shiners not shad.

Oddly all smallies came from inside bays.

Well the lake is again high above summer pool at 361,running anywhere from 148,000 cfs to 198000 cfs,so no ledge bite to speak of.Just to much current,toss a jig in be behind the boat prior to hitting bottom.

Do not dispair while the hydrulla and elodia are covered up,newly flooded bank offers brush,wood and believe it or not fescue,orchard grass,johnson grass,and pitching and flipping are in order.

Mouth of bays being a top spot not back ends,large monster worms and jigs.Strike king series 3  in chart/sexy shad is also working at brush edge.For those who beat the bank so to speak tailer made.

It is this time of year that has mixed feelings for me,as it is best at a ledge bite,by ledge meaning deeper.

Mostly I myself tend to fish humps not drops,yet surrounded by deep water.Best bite was on watermelon seed or pbj jigs with paca craws,depth 12-17 ft.

Deeper one would have th fizz to deflate swim bladder,proper care of fish caught is or should be a primary concern,in my own thoughts no T should weigh in dead bass-period.That would make those who fish deeper take better care of their fish.

At 12-15ft I dont even use ice to cool them down and they survive even with 100 plus days.

Ive also caught fish shallow on grass sparcely topped with frogs,give it a bit be nice cover,sparce as yet mostly hydrilla,some coon tail,pondweeds etc.

I found out in a trip to Pickwhick that #57 the small mouth liked,it is ahead on hydrilla over ky lake.

For those who dont know what #57 is its a frog signature series Capt Kens.

Maybe im a shallow creature at heart but much rather toss frogs all day than fish ledges,when grass is available main lake the lilly pads are pretty much empty,ive caught one keeper each time out of lilly pad fields just not there in numbers when the grass is,so be it main lake will be a top bite in about a month.
