Fished out of Bobby's in Mount Holly today on the top end of Lake Wylie. Made a blast to the pipeline and on to the dam about daybreak. Picked up two rogue spots busting on shad on a large flat just short of the dam. Could have picked up a third, but I was too busy fooling with the camera and the photo of the second while he was busting beside me.
Began power fishing and alternating between a crankbait and a spinnerbait on my way back downstream to meet up with Stu and the gang. Picked up my third burning the spinnerbait past a dock in about 10 FOW. Rounded out the day with two more dinks on a jig and double tailed grub trailer.
Oh, forgot to mention...found a huge school of what I thought were perch in about 18' to 22' of water. Kept getting nibbles, but no hooksets. I downsized hooks and went through about three different color/lure choices before I landed this guy. I thought it was just coincidence and proceeded to catch two of his identical brothers before deciding I was on a school of baby channel cats. I quickly moved on...just thought it was interesting that those juvenile cats would school up like that over the channel. Looked just like a school of crappie or perch on the sonar.
Anyway...hope everyone had a nice weekend. Actually felt a little less like June and a little more like March today, so that was a plus!
