There are some 'eyes moving into the shallows now. Really isn't as good as it could be. Caught some, but most were small. Did get a couple of eaters though using Lindy rigs with a shiner. Check the sandbars, especially at night. Tried to go deep too using jigheads tipped with shiner. Fished 30' to 35' and caught a few very nice ones.
Tried for some crappies and got zilch. I don't think they are happening yet. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong cause I sure would like to find them.
Heard tell that the smallies are nice. Some in the 18 inch category being caught in front of small streams - anywhere that has moving water. Not much of a smallie guy though.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
