Rob and I launched at Oak Cove and was on the our way to the first spot around 6:30. Decided we would try to find the spot Dennis Christian mentioned in his report - SW of 287 bridge North bulkhead.
Stopped at the wrong inlet first but saw some top water activity. Cast out a medium sized Pop R and got a major blowup that immediately snapped my line. Clean cut, no abrasion, no slipped knot. Must have been a gill cut. Decided this was not the right place and moved further South. One boat on the point and they were catching a fish or two so we set up West of them and started picking up a fish or two. Some deep and some shallow. We were throwing rattle traps, or little georges and a thump buddy above. After about 15 minutes the show began. Never seen this specticle before but very large schools of large sandbass had corraled schools of shad right up against the bulkhead. Shad flying out of the water, some fish running into the bulkhead as they moved down it.
We were catching two at a time 15" and some 16" sandbass. The whole area was lit up with activity and the graph was solid fish right under us. This went on for about an hour, 60 fish with only about 6 below 14" all sandbass. Sorry no pics of fish because it was just too hectic to stop, only a couple of screen shots.

After that died down we went over to sometime island. Caught 22 more. The rest of the day was at Pelican in 22-24 fow and caught fish steady until the wind died and the lake was glass. We caught a few yellow bass and everyone was sickly, sunken stomachs, shredded fins and some had fungus.
Something is happening to the yellow bass in RC. No other fish we caught had these symptoms.

Last stop was West arm of main lake right before the tree line on the North side. Located 2 schools and caught several more. Ended the day with 247 fish all returned. RC is fishing great right now.
