Got back last week from a trip to the Holy Land and feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to walk where our Lord walked. It was even better because I got to go with wife, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons. While there it occurred to me I should have brought a Mepps to try it in the Sea of Galilee. Here are a couple of pics:

Well, it is always nice to get back home from a long trip and get back into one's routine, which, for me, includes fishing. I fished a little from Thursday through Saturday on the south end of the lake. They were hard to find but managed a few including the nice crappie below that my sis caught. Today I went out at 12:30 PM after the rains. The lake was smooth and not too hot. I headed north and found an abundance of catchable fish in four spots: the south edge of Iron Wall Hump in 24 fow (graph shot below), the south edge of Spillway Hump on the slope in 25 too 27 fow, the south slope of Enchanted Isle Ridge in 22 fow and all over Game Warden Hump in 14 to 18 fow. I ended up with 71 fish by 3:30PM and headed in. I left catching fish every cast at all 4 places. In addition to #4 Mepps I could also catch fish on a 3/4 oz Little Cleo burning it up from the bottom. Fish were mostly whites averaging 14 inches, but also caught 4 legal hybrids at Spillway Hump.

Please feel free to add your Cedar Creek Reports to this post, which I'll also keep updating throughout June with additional fishing reports.
