Bluebird skies when I put in at 1pm. WT 56 F, no wind, water vis 3-4 ft and green. Bluff ends with Arig, Ned nothing. Mouths of spawning coves with wart, Ned nothing.

Secondary points and banks with mixed rock and pea gravel with wart, 9 fish in 1.5 hrs, 7 keeps all but 2 were brown fish. Largest brownie 3.5lb. Most others 2-2.5 mostly females. Lone LM approaching 4 lbs.

Bite stopped and finally got back on them swimming a shad colored grub on secondary points. 15 total, 12 SM, 1K, 1LM, 1 Meanie. Best 5 were 14 ish. Fun day. Should be better tomorrow for those who can get away.

Nice work, Jim. Thanks for the detailed report. Donna and I are about to go see what we can scare up down that way.

What color wart?

Brown crawdad. Pause it before it gets to the boat for a half second or so, then crank it in. Fish were in 6-10 fow.

I'm sure some other cranks would work too. Caught a few of the nicer ones on an old Deep Jim in same color. Gets a little deeper...

The brown bass were really locked in on areas with some pea gravel. I missed several fish the slapped at the wart half way back to the boat. Pausing it momentarily helped.
