Made our way down towards the small bridge at the end of the lake and threw a black spinnerbait about 5 feet from the shore in 5-12 feet of water where the fish were stacking all over the fish finder. First cast was SLAMMED. A solid 2.5lbr. Was the same way for a good hour before the bite slowed down and the sun started working it's way up. Caught about 10 bass today. 4 of which were all 2-3lbs and VERY healthy fish. Had a blast until it went from a cool 70 to 82 in a matter of minutes. Water temps were around 86-90 and use a very slow retrieve. Also missed a monster on a black buzzbait. Honestly scared the life out of me when it struck causing me to set the hook too soon. My friend and I estimated the fished to be at least 7lbs by it's head alone. Oh well. Still an amazing morning. Happy Fishing everyone!

PS: Sorry for the bad quality of the photos, tried to take them quickly in the dark to keep the fish from being out too long.
