January is almost done, can't wait for February and March to get here.

I fished from 0900 to 3 PM.  Didn't cover a whole lot of ground, I found fish on a long rocky runout with timber and stayed there for a while, it was my best spot and produced 10 bass, all on the ned except one on a Pointer 78.

Picked up a bass here and there on some rocky points on the Ned, finished the day with 17 bass.  Most of them were in 10-20 FOW.

I was fishing the Ned really slow, dragging it on the bottom.  I had several fish follow it right to the boat and I'd see them on the transducer on the bottom straight down.  I think I caught 4 or 5 just jiggling the Ned right off the bottom under the ducer when they'd show up.  I'm convinced those bass were following it to the boat and wouldn't eat it until it was wiggled in their face.  Very little wind today which certainly helps fishing that Ned really slow.

Wt was 42 when I started, 44 when I left.  Water is still stained green.

Nice fish and good numbers. Did you see any surface activity in the calm conditions?

When I first started at about 9 AM, there was some scattered activity.  I caught the only jerkbait fish by being close enough to one of those surfacers to get that bait on him and he ate it.

Once the sun came out the top water activity stopped.

Saw a dying shad and some slow moving shad, I am wondering if this next cold front coming through will get a shad kill going.

Great job Quill.  On the shad deal Becky and I went to Flat Creek for my birthday and when we crossed the KC bridge there were quite a few gulls diving.  Some of the shad have been pretty  close tot he surface so I think your right they may get stunned and may see some come thru TR dam.  I  read that Phil said the trout are just starting to notice white jigs, but  it has been really tough down there the past month or so.
