Fishing update, as of 6/9

Spent a week now chasing the little buggers. Pretty decent fishing, despite the weather and the low 80 degree water temps.

Up front info... haven't seen much of anything that looks like drop shot or other vertical fish. And we've looked.

We have found a solid drag bite, main lake or near it. Pretty much requires a sharp drop, wood, deep water access, or better yet all three together. Mostly 18'-25', but if you find a place with a shallower drop, it's worth checking. 

Guarantee Bo could point to a few on the map. These places may look like flat gravel, but the better ones have stair step ledges, sometimes with 15' less than 50 yards from 100+.

Catching a mix of all 4, meanies included, with a good number of solid blacks. Ned is catching them, but so is a tube, and the stupid Finesse Shadz. We've caught a handful of fish on top, all wake baits of various kind. That includes the monstrous Bull Shad wake bait. That's like throwing a live 9" bluegill at them.

Were you rigging these up on your ned heads? I picked up some of what I think were called slim swimz at Bass Pro on clearance and I think they are very similar to the finesse shads. I had planned to try them on the ned.

Great to see you back on the water Dave. Hope all is well. Net Monkey is quickly turning into Net Gorilla. Only a few more years before you're the one in the back scrambling for the net. Thanks for sharing.

Weight room will do that to a feller. Em's girls team won the 5A powerlifting title.

Seth...yes and no answer. Yes, same heads, no the slim swimz is not at all the same. It's a fantastic little swimmer, some won't like me saying that, but it's much shorter than the Shadz, with an action tail. 

Shadz is basically an elaztech gycb shad shape worm. No salt. It's an acquired taste at best. With just the little breeze today, it was nearly unfishable.
