I don't have any positive information to give you guys, it was a struggle, I got 6 bass into the boat, only 2 keeper sized, a 2.5 lb. smallie and a 2 lb. spot. Caught all my fish on jigs, mainly around or near docks. Could not get anything going on the steep banks or back in the coves. Once the sun came out, the shad started swimming around near the surface, but for whatever reason the bass weren't chasing them.

Water temps were 65-67

Got to watch an eagle try and get some scaup (bluebills) for breakfast, he was diving on a cluster of 4 of them, the eagle would swoop down and just before he got to them, the ducks would dive and then pop right back up after the eagle started to climb again, the eagle gave up after 4 or 5 attempts, pretty cool to watch and I was rooting for the eagle, but today was not his day to have duck on the menu.

Getting to watch something like that makes the trip worthwhile even if the fishing was slow!

Yep, got to drink in the whole experience. That way you never come home empty-handed.

Yep. Been plenty of times I didn't catch squat but still had a good time on the lake.
