Fished from 6:30 am to 1pm. Fishing was steady. Caught 11 fish with biggest at 4.5 lbs. Most we're caught on watermelon red char tail T- Rigged trick worm in 5-10ft of water. Spent the majority of the time fishing docks. Pattern was finding a bulkhead that connected to dock in the shade where the waves were slopping around creating a little foam. If the fish slammed it then I could pull another fish out of there in 4 to more casts. If fish just grabbed and swam then it was holding solo. Water at midlake was from 85-89F and muddy to heavy stain. Lower end was much clearer and 83-85 degrees. Did not go to the upper end. Caught all of my fish in the cooler clearer water. Fished some offshore on isolated brush piles/structure where I caught my better fish on craw colered jiggs or trick worm but got tired of fighting the pleasure boaters and left the deeper water. Still learning the lake and trying to find more brush piles.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways with a fishing rod in one hand, 10# LMB in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and yelling "Wow! What a Ride!
