Fished Beaver Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Launched out of Hickory Saturday and Monday, Lost Bridge North on Sunday. Took the boss lady out Sat and Sun, fishing buddy Mon. On the water around 6:30 Sat morning, cool and windy start(all day for that matter). Hoping to get some topwater action, had one blow up on walking bait on like 2nd cast, that was it for TW. Moved on and hit some of my regular spots trying to get the wife on some fish and out of the wind. She had a few hookups but didn't put anything in the boat. I caught several LM, all on a stupid tube. Back holler bluff walls with rock(chunk/ledges, not smooth), wood, or where bank cut in. They were all pretty tight to the bank or hit on the fall when it dropped off of rock/ledge. Boat was in 12-19 FOW. Even got one female with a bloodied up tail. Got off the water around 2pm. Sunday morning we skipped church and went to Lost Bridge. Didn't get on the water until about 9:00. Went exploring a new area. Tied her on a GY Hula Grub. She catches a big ole bream, her first fish in the Vexus, and then catches a smallmouth. I was so excited for her! So, I tied on a hula grub as well and we could've filled the boat up with bream. Sun finally popped out and we did more running around than fishing. Water on the north end was quite a bit clearer than at Hickory and super clear up by the dam. With the sun coming out there was an enormous pleasure boat hatch. We decide to call it a day and head home to watch the rest of the Razorbacks baseball game. Monday me and my buddy on the water around 5:45. Idled past HC marina to hopefully get some TW action over by the campground. That didn't happen but there was a huge shad spawn going on around the flooded trees in that area. Moved out from there and found fish busting the top near the main lake channel. Chasing shad like crazy. No joy on TW, so tossed a Keitech and got a really nice white bass, and another, and another, etc. Buddy gets a small LM and a spot in the mix. I'm sitting in 50+ FOW but there's a ledge there that's about 12FOW. I start throwing and letting bait sink to the bottom in that shallow water and just scrounged it back until it fell off the ledge, if it made it that far before hooking up. Almost all LM, but fairly short. This action went on for a good while. We hit a few more spots, my friend gets a really short walleye on jerk bait and a LM on purple worm way back in the brush. I stick with swim baits and get one here and there. We move on to a regular spot and its one here one there. As we go around a point I ask him why we never fish this flat, it should be a good spawning flat?? A minute later I've got a biggun on. Decide to BASS/BPT/MLF it instead of grabbing the net, and I failed at getting it in the boat. Lesson learned, got net, use net! We moved back into another holler and I got pretty hot on them again. I think I actually had a Rage Tail on now instead of Keitech. Back of the boat buddy still had Keitech and got a few as well. We them got here in water that was 4 feet deep to 9-12 feet deep. We got off the water around 2pm again and had a really good day. Majority of the bass we caught were LM, maybe half a dozen spots, and maybe 6-8 of the LM would've measured(Not including one that should be pictured in this post!). Several line burner shorts. Wind was not bad at all Monday. Water temp seemed to have dropped a degree or two.
