I've done "OK" on numbers, but not many "big" fish, either. I did catch a
5 pounder last Wednesday about 11am in 2-3 feet of water (in the shade). The topwater bite has definitely been "off" for me during early morning hours compared to past years.
In memory of my childhood friend Dan Sterling, who taught me at an early age how to catch bream with a hand-line, and who unknowingly hooked me on fishing for life.
