Went yesterday from about 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Water temp was 61-63 degrees, stained in the backs of creeks. Caught probably about 30 with about 12 keepers. Most fish came from staging areas again 8-12 ft on brush piles. We did however catch a few up on the bank 6-18 inches in sticks and brush, and the ones we did catch up there were all keepers. Most of the better fish were caught on jigs. Numbers were on minnows with a slip cork.

So long story short, there are some shallow fish to be caught, but you have to work for them. The majority of fish have not moved up on the banks just yet. I'm not sure what this weather will do to them, depends on the amount of rain we get I guess. I'm still anticipating a big push of fish very soon.

Pretty much just standard Belton crappie. No giants and we didn't have that many so I didn't take pictures. I'll try and get some next time.

Monkey milk with a chartreuse dyed tail. I thinks its a strike king wally marshall shad. Had it on a 1/16 jighead.
