[quote=Kingfish1760]I have no idea if this is the regular pattern or dumb luck,
That's the regular pattern but great luck that a bunch of yahoos didn't roar in and put them down. You don't have to tell but I wonder where you found them because I was out at the same time and there was a dozen boats bunched up in the middle of the lake. They didn't stay on them though and it ended up just being me and two other boats, working them real easy, just staying on the edge of the two acre school, so they stayed up a long while. I left them still hitting at noon.
As for trolling the dam, haven't tried it but lots of scattered fish marking at 30 feet, we've been catching them on slabs hung over the side while we are working surfacing fish. Bigger whites that way and hybrids too.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. Henry David Thoreau
