    YES. The bite is really good last hour of daylight. Same results last night. 30 Keepers. Sat and sundays catch were mostly males. 9 to 10.5". Yesterday the size increased dramatically. Had 8 fish from 11" to 13". Only a couple of those were females. Last night we started at 5:45 and were done at 7:00.  If ya compare both pics you can see the size difference. My cooler is 14" wide on the inside.  I use jigs and wife like minnows. Both workin and jig color doesnt matter !

    Bolivar landing area. Only fished a couple hours. 3-5. Water was cooler then expected. 55-56. Caught 10 nice ones from 10-12". All look to be males. Fishing close to spawning areas but in 15' depth. Fish all holding in 10-12' depth. Jig / minnow combo. Tried some shallow areas but no bites. Seen ONE dogwood just starting to bloom. Think i'll be staying home and getting some work done and hit it hard next week

    Another one was last year at Orleans Trail Marina ramp. Guy was launching by himself. Noticed he had an ulterra also. Floated off and he got out to deploy and drive it back to the dock (like the commercial). Then started running around like a decapitated chicken yelling every swear word in the book. Left his remote in the boat !! Tried my remote but it wouldnt work. I idled out and brought it back to the dock. Alot of bikinis in the area so i think he was trying to show off a bit. He did get alot of attention !!

    OHHH. That sucks. I do have an Ulterra TM. It would possibly help in that situation IF it was still in range of the remote. I've had more bad luck and seen my share of others bad luck at that ramp ! Been a few years back. Storm blowin in and everyone trying to get out at same time. Guy ahead was power loading his bassboat and hit the roller too hard and jarred the truck out of park and rolled right back into the lake ! Completely submerged. Had to ride out the storm on water and waited around a few hours to watch the recovery. That was a terrible thing to watch happen. One guy was on the dock and ran to help but couldnt get there in time. Thats a memory that has yet to leave me. Think about it every time I launch and load the boat.

    Hit the lake at 9:30am tryin to beat the wind,  Wind won the race. Went out of High Point. Water temps 51-52 !! Bit puzzling since I've been seeing 56-57 around the dam ?? Not much of anything showing up on the graph. picked up a few crappie DEEP on some points and a bonus 21" walleye. Got the heck outa there at noon. Wind and waves at the ramp were crazy. Crappie all female. Eggs firm and not bloody at all. Also there was a nice looking black lab hanging out around the ramp. Seemed lost. Very friendly. Wanted in the boat with me but my yorkie wasnt having any part of that!! Had a wide camo collar on but no tags. Didnt see him when i got back. Hopefully belongs to someone local.

    Thanks for the pics and congrats.  Glad you got to go on a trip and a very good one at that.  Always fun to hear stories of other lakes fished around the country.

    I think the reason for disinformation is to avoid too many people having freezers full of fillets
