Report is from Oct-5th....started a little later ....0800...air temp was cold but quickly climbed to the forecasted 80+....air in the truck felt good on the ride home....wind and clouds kept them active in the morning....as the day wore on the wind died and the clouds faded....got very hot for an October day...had 40 on the clicker and 17 made the trip home....most on fatheads...couldn't get them to hit the casted baits....could see them in the submerged brush ...but they weren't interested in most of our presentations...

Worked most of the lake near the west boat launch, found bass taking texas rigged craw fish plastics at the large boulders right near the dam also at the concrete ledge on the shore at the dam. No other fish in any other area. All bass averaged around 1.5 to 3 lbs.

Fished on the 15th and 17th last week. Trolled worm harnesses, one with half of a night crawler, the other a minnow. The crawlers caught the most.    I was hoping to catch walleye and sauger. I did catch a few but they were all short. Caught several nice white bass, bluegill, a crappie and a bunch of small yellow bass. I only fished the west end of the lake.

Late report for Easter Sunday. Fished 2pm-7pm. Ended up with 12. Nothing bigger than 11". Had to work for them. Mini-mite under float. Had to keep it moving or no bites. Even tried minnows and not one bite. Did also catch a handful of small whitebass. Great day to be out.
