Fished FCL yesterday from 7:30 - til 5:30. Water temp ranged from mid 70s to low 80s. Lake level was 390.83 MSL...inching closer to full pool at 390 MSL. Wind was not ideal (10-15 mph) but manageable...the main problem with windy conditions is that everyone who fishes there on a regular basis knows all the best wind break spots. Now to the fishing...Tried 10 different areas, and found sunfish in 5 of those spots. Ended up with 102 total count fish, with around 25 bass & the rest a variety of gils. The big girls were definitely eager to cooperate, and the bass bite was crazy. Caught the majority of Sunfish & all the bass on the Gulp Minnows, but tried the Gulp Alive crickets for a while & they just attacked those crickets with a vengeance. Caught my first "reeds" sunfish of the year which means they are really moving in. I believe the shad spawn event just happened, or is in progress & that is why so many bass were busting them all over the lake. Also the gar are mating everywhere &very interesting to see.

You are the man! One day I tried targeting perch with a bobber and earthworms. I didn’t get a bite and haven’t tried since. Thanks for the info and I might need to try your techniques when the bass aren’t cooperating.

Jamie...I thought you would like the "reeds" comment...I think about you every time I target them now...

BJ...Right now the bass seem to be in a post spawn feeding frenzy...use anything that looks like a shad. It's kind of annoying catching bass on this lite drop shot setup because about half the time they screw it up and you have to re-tie...maybe a good problem to have...

Thanks Jagg (Yankee Crappie Magnet) , Leo & Yesenia (loved the Turkey pics) & Alan...Good luck on the water this week.
