Lake looked still. No wind on Fayette usually equals a tougher bite. I've had days in that exact cove where I've caught 70+ fish without lifting the TM. When you hit it just right, you can usually pull multiples off the same tree. I had a trip out there a few years ago where my best was 12 fish in 12 casts off that large tree all the way in.
Did you fish the trees out on the outside point leading in? That's where I usually find the bigger bite knocking DD22's into everything I can hit.
For what it's worth, the last few trips I've gone the afternoon into evening bite has been much better than the morning to afternoon bite. I usually don't find a good reed bite until about 2hrs before sun down. You can usually burn blades, sqbills and tx-rigs on the wind blown reed lines for a few hours at dusk.
