Well, I said I would report back, and I got skunked, skunked. I know there were some fish caught that morning, so I know its me realmad

We got on the water about 9:30 and went up in Caney creek, mostly fished there, brushy creek, and a few others the whole day. Found 58-59 deg water. Threw jigs, big & small, jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, swimbaits, worms, shakey head worms, and of course the swimjig a lot. Fished shallow mostly but did mark some fish out deep, didn't spend much time on them. We found a few patches of grass, but never found the thick hydrilla or milfoil I wanted to fish.
Stayed on the water all day, even ate lunch on the boat. My buddy caught one about 2 1/2 on a spinnerbait right as the sun was going down. That was it. Not complaining, still enjoyed being on the water. Just thought Id throw it up in case anyone else had a tough day.

I was out yesterday 1300 to 1700 and caught 2 15 inches or so. Red Craw 1/2 oz trap on point just before I quit. Stayed in White Oak Branch all afternoon. Pretty muddy still. No grass on my trap. 58 degrees most I saw. 54 near main lake.

Hey, I've been skunked while fishing with some of the best guides on the lake!

Mother Fork can be fickle!

Mutha Forker has been known to do that on a regular basis to me......I fished Lew yesterday and could not get bit anywhere on main lake....so I cheated and went back into the warm water, 66degrees. Caught 14 bass and some magnum sandies...poo creek saved the day!

Ha thanks guys that makes me feel better. It is a special place, honestly we couldn't believe how fast the day went while not catching any. I guess its just in the back of my mind I know any cast could produce the fish of a lifetime, makes it fun to be on that lake

Hang in there. Thats just Fork. Fished from 4-6 this evening. It was a hit windy but had 6-7 bites all 5' or less midlake. Had to slow way down. No big fish but a couple of unders that were just under I would have liked to have in a tournament out here. Water temps were 52-59 for me.

I sure hope the water gets clearer before MegaBass. I can't believe how stained it looks in virtually every picture I have seen posted this year

Hey thanks Mark, btw I got to handle some of your swimbaits at the store, they are amazing! I was after the smaller size but someone cleaned you out before I got there, which is good of course!
