First Tenney Park cat trip last night. No dice. Caught one yellow bullhead around midnight, but that's it. Smelled awful over there. Like sewage or stagnant seawater. What gives? Not sure if that had anything to do with the lack of fish, but it might have.

Fished from 9am-2pm today. Caught two short eyes, 8 Rock Bass, and an 14" smallie. All under a slip-bobber with a half crawler. Tried casting with swim baits,with no luck.
Im coming from out of town for the holiday weekend to go fishing with my dad. We were planning on fishing mendota for whitebass on sunday. I am just curious if anyone has any kind of reports regarding the whitebass. Are they schooled up and biting? Thanks for any help. Everyone have a fun and safe holiday weekend, maybe we will see ya on the water.

Rat: we were crazy enough to try it Sunday afternoon. Had to stay out of the wind. No live bait, and first time out with the boat this year. Found some fish, although the action was better around noon, and got worse as the day progressed. Ended up with 3 eyes (one was legal), a half dozen crappies, 4 smallies, a few rocks, and several pike. One was a beast at 39", caught on crappie gear and 6 lb test. Picture of that and a 13" slab. Sometimes it pays to brave the weather. Wish we would have gotten out in the AM, as the fishing shut down by 4. Stayed out until 8, but the last 2 hours accounted for 2 fish. Nice and peaceful out though.
all fish over weeds, 5-10 feet. Water temp varied, but mid 50's about ave.
