Met Rob at Oak Cove and on the water at 6am. We have been wanting to go to Whitney but you know how flooded it is and probably won't be able to fish it this summer at all. Leave the ramp and head for the flats. Graphed a while fished a little but never found any concentrations of fish. Noticed a fog bank down at the dam so headed that way. Couldn't believe how foggy it was and how much cooler the air was at the gates. Found birds working and fish busting the top but they would not go for any top water lures or several other types and color of lures. They were all around us and we could hardly buy a bite. Finally found that they wanted chart spinner. It was fish on almost every cast for about 1/2 hour. Then they went down and scattered. This was in 40-50 fow.
Tried several other places but could only get one here and one there. Rob said lets try the woods, North and West of 287 bridge. BINGO. Slabbin them up two at a time. But the bite was very weird for this time of year. It was like dead sticking in winter, you could hardly feel the bite at all. The line got heavy or slack but you did not feel the bite period. Don't know how many we caught but we had a great time. All catch and release. Be aware that there are a lot of under hybrids in the mix. One more thing, be sure to bring bug spray, there was absolutely no wind and they were all over us.
