The rains did not mess up fishing. I went out from 3 to 7:30PM yesterday and caught 94 including some big white bass a bunch of short hybrids and a couple of legal hybrids. Half were caught at Dam Drop-off, where several regulars were fishing including Fastguy George. Most of the whites there were 10 to 11 inches. The rest were caught on one of the shallow humps on the Crappie Flats. That's where the big whites were, and it was a fish every cast til I got tired and went in.
Today friend Paul H invited me out to help him get waypoints for my fishing spots into the graph on his new boat. We went out about 10:30AM found fish to be totally un-cooperative. We could see fish but they must have gotten a memo not to bite (perhaps the bright moonlight had them full from night feeding). Heck, we even tried slabs to no avail. We had hit 5 spots each showing fish and had only caught about half a dozen fish. Finally, we found a spot where they bit - Dam Drop-off. We sat there and caught fish steadily until about 4:30PM. I estimate we caught about 30 whites in the 13 to 16 inch range. The rest were the 10 to 12 inch size. We caught 4 good sized blue cats and some short hybrids as well. We caught the fish in 13 to 15 fow on #4 silver Mepps.
