Fished Alan Henry from about 9:30 to about 4:00. Caught 11 bass, biggest was a spot that weighed 2-14. A good LMB about the same size came later. Spinnerbait, took 1, jerkbait took 1 jig took 1 (green pumpkin)and the rest came on soft plastics, M3 color of worm for Zoom, blue fleck for Berkley Power worm. Both Texas riggged and shakey head rigs, about 1/2 and 1/2 on those. Bigger fish came on Texas rigged worms. Things that did not work included: Drop shot; 3 depths of CBs, rattle traps; We did see one spot about 14" long floating on the top of the lake off of a roadbed. Had too big of a bluegill in it's mouth. We killed the blue gill and might have killed the bass, don't know, but it swam back down after being out of the water for about 1.5 mintues while we got the blue gill out of it's mouth. Got pictures of that one. Hope this helps and we look forward to seeing you out at the Working Man's Ts starting on April 15th. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

PS. The lake is getting ready to explode with spawners. We heard some BIG fish in the shallows in Gobbler, but it would have taken a chainsaw to get to them. Didn't see any deep nest, but we weren't looking either. Water temps were 59.5 in the AM ang got to 63.1 PM.

Had a friend go out today and they caught 20, spinnerbaits (chartreuse/white), and shakey heads were the only two lures that worked today. Caught several in the 3.25 lb range, so better day than we had. Up in Gobbler and outside of Gobbler creek.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
