Got to take my Uncle out to Lake Cammack Friday morning, it was beautiful day for being on the water! We had a good day with some decent numbers, although there was nothing to brag about size wise. We started around 630 am and fished till around lunch, and caught everything from bream to to jacks. Early we hunted the LMB top water blow ups using a frog colored spook, and my uncle had this vintage top water...mabye yall can help identify it...looked like a popper, but it had a buzz bait style propeller on front of it and in the back it had a skirt...anyway only one small one caught, on the vintage. so we changed to crankbaits and plastics, I managed about a 1 pounder on a T-rigged worm black\pink tail, and a few others were caught. Decided to switch species and headed towards the bridge to sit in the sade and jig for some crappie. In the way we trolled some big lipped cranks across the points and ended up with a crappie and a few more small LMB. got to the bridge and marked a nice school of crappie but only catching a couple, they were only about 8". So we switched gears again and threw a cork with a worm hanging under it, and caught plenty of bream, even a few war mouth. As it was getting too hot to want to stay we headed back to the ramp and most every one else ont the lake had the same idea as us. So the ramp was busy, no problem time enough for a few more casts, went to the cove just across the way and caught my first jack! had read that they were in cammack but had never caught one. Impressive fish, faught hard and had some nice teeth! It was a good day spent with family. Nothing better than taking a day off work to go fishing!

Jacks are great fun, especially if you get a really good one, but you're right.... they will cut some line.

Great report, thanks!

That top water bait your uncle had sounds like a bait called a Sputter Ace. Got a buzz blade in front, wooden body, treble hooks, and a skirt on back. Oh, and a little piece of plastic tube that you ran the line thru at the line tie or else the line constantly wrapped up around the buzz blade.

They were pretty good baits.
