Well, The lake has come up an additional 2 feet since I last reported earlier this week. I would imagine it will crest, with no more rain, around 480.?? Most of the water is very stained with the exception of major arms on the north basin begining to flush out. I had friend and Client John Wright, Memphis TN, fishing with me Saturday. We Boated over 70 fish total for the day with the catch including Spotted Bass, Hybrids, Walleye and of course White Bass. The fish where active all day long but you had to work for them. All the new water has not affected the bite and if anything actually helped, believe it or not. Most of the fish we targeted came on 1/8 oz. Jig Heads with a 3" curly tail grub, Chartreuse and Pearl are very good right now with the color in the water when fished on a slow and steady retrieve in and around the buck brush and flooded timber. The important thing to remember is don't over complicate things, KISS, Keep it simple stupid, is an age old acronym and should be applied during the next coming weeks. I will also tell you that the White's are in full swing and spawning heavily day and night, If you fish for 15 minutes and don't get a bite and you know your in the right location's change color, presentation until you start catching. The white's are super sensitive to color and speed, don't overlook this aspect. Stick bait's are still producing but not as good as the jig and grub combo. I'll keep it short and sweet for now, I'm hitting the water again.
