The big males have started, but I haven't found them relating to wood like they did last year. They are in 3.5 fow in the hydrilla.
The Hydrilla is making a STRONG comeback this year, a lot of the coves will be matted up this summer
If you catch 1, stop and slow way down, there is usually more nearby if not right in the same area.
I'm sure someone may have found some of the big gals, but the ones I found were on structure in 8-12 fow.
Hickory Nut & I are going out today to check some more areas
