Been fishing the lake the past 2 weekends. Finding some in 10 feet or shallower water. Been able to keep a few, some get out of the slot. Morning best for these. Also been going deep, up to 40 feet. Catching some there too, but most are too big for the slot. Only caught about 30 fish both weekends and ended up keeping about 10. Pretty slow for the 'eyes, if you ask me. Been very hot lately and that seems to turn them off. A lot of work for a few fish. Besides 'eyes, we've been catching a fair amount of smallies. That can be fun when the 'eyes are turned off. Been using raps mostly. A lot of people think that the next couple of weeks should be good. We'll see. I'll keep you all informed.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
