Fished Eagle Mountain today from 1045 to around 245...managed 2 bass...one about 2.5lb and one about 1.5lb. Both fish caught on crankbaits on secondary points with rock. Probably came around 4-7 ft deep with much deeper water nearby. Had another bite on soft plastic but could've been a perch, small bass or who knows. As usual, the weatherman missed on his wind predictions. He said 10-20....I'll say let's take the 10 part of that away...wind did lay somewhat before I got off the water, but it was really blowing midday.

Located huge schools of bait in 15-25ft but didn't see any bass with them on the graph. Searched nearby structure at that depth and it was bare.

I will also add that both of those dinks were chunks....I'd like to see what a 22 or 23 inch fish would weigh there right now.

Tight lines,
Mark

I went out from 3-5 and threw soft plastics. Did not get a bite. Water temp. at my dock is 50 so I'm thinking another 6-8 degrees it will pick up and 10-12 degrees is gonna turn on those big mamas.

Was out 6-1130... marked bait out to 24-27 ft with fish underneath. Tried jigs as my main focus today but no yield. Water stained 45-49. It's only a matter of time! Edit* wind was already kicking swiftly by the time I was getting off the lake. 10 was def 15-20 in my calibrated opinion!
