Was at Lake James bright and early Sunday morning. Started throwing topwater (zara spook, jr) on main lake humps and long, rocky points. The areas were loaded with shad, and smallmouth. Both blind casting and throwing to breaking fish produced good numbers, with a few good sized smallies. Topwater lasted until around 12, when it got really hot and the usual crowd of ski boats and jet skis came out, making it tough to fish the main lake humps. Switched up and went to the backs of coves and started catching largemouths, all on weightless rigged flukes. Caught some bigger largemouth occasionally but most were decent sized males guarding fry. Had a great day, managed between 15-20 fish, and probably missed as many on topwater. Sorry for the bad pics, not good at the selfie fish pic so gave up.
