Another great day on R-C. The thermocline delineation has all but dissolved. The water is mixing nicely allowing fish to have oxygenated water at depths deeper than 30'.

The morning started slow so I started the usual drive around the lake. I ended up near Windsock about 9:20 am and there was 2-acres of shad jumping. Not just any shad, but 5" long monster shad. Underneath them were 2-acres of 17" white bass and hybrids. No topwater as the "tiny" 3 inch lures couldn't get the fish's attention on the surface, but it was doing an awesome job of catching them on the bottom in 38 feet of water. Action lasted about 40 minutes.

Cooler weather means more awesome fishing!

Here is a screen shot of two acres of 5" shad being assaulted by whites and hybrids.

That's like a playground full of 5 yr olds at an Easter egg hunt.

Have you been able to find any consistent bite on keeper hybrids? Or is it still just the occasional keeper mixed in with the whites?

It has been fairly consistent. There are a couple of hybrid only schools moving in the main body, so you have to do some hunting. Based on the sonar, there are probably 50ish in size. In the last week I've had maybe 15 to 20 undersized and an equal amount of keepers.

There have been several huge schools of magnum white bass roaming and there have been both undersized and keepers mixed in too. Schoolies have been the top 10 feet of water, then magnum whites, and the last few feet have been hybrids.

Since the thermocline has broken up, they are holding deeper. Today I picked a few up at 42 feet.
