I got out on the water for the first time since July 23rd.. been out of town! The lake is down about 4' from the last time I was out.. but not much below normal pool looks to me. I started around 7:30 with a pretty good wind out of the north working.. caught a few dinks on the first point I tried. I moved on to some deep water spots and saw very little activity on the graph.. Long story short.. the drop shot caught little ones, except for a big old Drum!.. that bad boy was probably 5 or 6lbs and put up a pretty good fight! It hit a Yammamoto shad shaped worm, nose hooked in about 20' of water.
I got tired of drop shotting, so I went looking for some new water I could deep crank. I found a creek whip back point that I had never fished before.. creek was about 25' in the channel.. shallow part was about 16'. I was cranking a 6XD, from the shallow spot casting out in to the channel.. and I started catching sand bass! There was no way those fish could have gotten that bait in their mouth.. but they were keeper sand bass! I released the first 4, then thought.. dang these would eat pretty good.. so.. when I caught the 5th one I put it in the live well.. and didn't catch another one! frustrating!
I have no clue where the LM are.. but it was a great day on the water..
