Oh man, that is pressure..... May not want to take that invite for fear of disappointment. Did not know I actually had status on that lake. I can do this Sunday or the following weekend most likely.

Sounds like the thermocline is setting in finally.

It could have been thermocline pockets. Last year there was an algae bloom and the water had a foul smell. But I know a guide who lives one mile from the boat ramp, fishes the lake all the time and he doesn't think it's algae, so it probably is not. In fact, he has been on some decent fish out in deeper water. He hasn't been on good numbers, but he is catching some good quality fish. Like five to eight pound fish... The jig has been his go to bait. Pete Dodge guide service. He also has a shop where he sales tackle and he makes custom rods, cleans reels and so forth. Good guy, I highly recommend him.... I have his number but to lazy to get it so I can post on here. But he has a face book page, just type in his name and it will pop up.

Lol. We did catch a lot of solid fish, but I’m glad you came since you caught the most. Actually BMCD, it was nice to meet you and I had a good time fishing with you.
