Dropped the boat in the water around 5pm and fished til about 8:30. I didn't even turn my electronics on but water temps have to be up in the 70's, the water would have been warm enough to swim in.

Anyways, only caught 1 dink on a ned rig but the purpose of posting was to seek some feedback from folks who fish this lake. I found one spot where there were multiple 2-3 pounders cruising in about 3-4 feet of water....I'm guessing post-spawn fish.

But they would not hit anything I threw at them. I tried a 4" fluke, TRD on a ned rig, a senko, a jig, and a kvd square bill. The TRD at least caught their eye but they didn't even pause at it, just kept swimming by it.

Any advice here?

Chatterbait with 4" paddle tail trailer for searching. Shad color or similar.
TRD or other "french fry" shaped bait, wacky rigged no weight.
Dark colored tube jig as little weight as you are comfortable using.

Good Luck,

I was never able to get the bank cruisers to bite once I saw them. I hope you crack that code, I never could. I typically stopped fishing that lake after the first week of April so warmer water and post-spawn I'm of very little use. Post up if you figure out something!
