Launching at Port road in big sandy headed to one of our favorite spots a rocky point,upon getting there discovered every one with a bobber within fifteen miles was there ahead of me,so hotspot number one was skipped to our dismay.Heading into a cove produced little where it had the week or so prior.

Then off to search for new water some weeds some wood some pea gravel then a flat with a definate edge or drop off to it.Visability 2 ft ,water temp  81-82F-superflukes-no current light breeze.-getting hot

Three hrs 2 keepers me again with the runt of the litter and Steve Huber a good friend with a nice one.

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.
