Finished 8th  over the weekend. Pattern: Crankin and topwaters just off the main lake. Dam-CowCreek.  Consistent morning bite on the cranker: wart/rk crawler. Be careful the small mouth are mean and eating it. Don't let them take the rod from you or break you off, set the drag and wear em down. Had a limit the 1st day for 11.35 by 930. One was a plopper bite. 2nd day 1st bite ended up being my limit fish that sky rocketed out of the water 3ft right in front of the boat only to throw it back at me. Weights dropped for everyone today. Biggest bag on day 1, 18lbs. Day 2 big bag was 11lbs.  Fall fishing is hear lots of options shallow or deep. Everyone have great week. Wt: since last Sunday have dropped 10 degrees. 79 then to 68-69 at the dam.

nice job.  your are right about bass being anywhere right now.  with the falling water temps, and cloudy days, the bait is scattered all over and so are the bass.  i would be with your thinking about chasing brownies right now.  18 lbs. was darn good for five fish.  it is next to impossible to catch them doing the same thing in the same places two days in a row.  even this summer, i never had any one place in mind to catch them.  just started out looking for bait on the electronics and kept on the move until i found them.

If you looked at map trails on my GPS it looked like a bowl of spaghetti! My plan was to have a mixed bag of smallmouth and largemouth. Smallmouth are biting unreal during lowlight hours that lasts til 9 with good cover like we had over the weekend. Smallmouth are intrguing to me, if it's sunny/windy they will tear the paint off a blade right now. If it's cloudy I couldn't get them to come up for one, you had to bang/drag something in their face.

Yes!  Had 15mph winds on Saturday.  They still bit on Sunday with a little ripple but its a early morning low light deal.  They are up shallow at night and move out once the sun gets over the horizon.  Babler had mentioned that McClelland had been catching good smallmouth shallow on the crawler early but once the sun got above the trees it was done.  With the clouds we had over the weekend it would last til 9:30.
