Wind out of the north and north east and blue bird skies and if im not mistaken there was a front that passed yesterday, and 1 star on the solunar table, no way I was supposed to catch a fish today, oh yeah, falling water too, I should have just slept in and spent the day working in the yard or something.

Put in about 6:30. A guy about dropped a Bass Tracker off the trailer 1/2 down the ramp, the motor caught it before it completely fell off, I helped him get it off the ramp. I started out running a few places in hopes of finding a shad spawn, it wasnt happening but I did catch 3 on top and had a few more blow it out of the water and not get hooked, 2 3 lbers and a 2.5, they all looked spawned out. I gave up on a topwater bite and decided to go flip some bushes as I know the corps pulled the plug and today would probably be my only opportunity before they go high and dry. In the next 2 or 3 hours I put 6 solid keepers in the boat, about 3 lbs each and all spawned out. After that I decided to go prospect some offshore areas that usually turn on about now, I picked up a 13" fish on a shakeyhead. Put it on the trailer about 3:30. Ended the day with 9 keepers and one short, I hate to think what it might have been like on a "good" fishing day.

You proved the theory that there are always fish biting somewhere regardless of the conditions. Well done!

Just helps prove that knowing how fish react to current conditions is more important than where the moon/sun is. Good job.

Good work on a tough lake! Sometimes it's the skill of the angler rather than the conditions. Sounds like you broke the code that day....
