The last 2 weeks have been really slow for me with todays count being 10 bass & 4 sunfish...Last week was 14 bass & 16 sunfish. All fish have been small. The water temps are running in the low to mis 60s on most areas with the discharge being mid 70s. Talked to the local expert and guide & he explained the brownish tea colored water in some areas being dead plankton. Guess it will take some time to get back to normal. Anyway, the weather was nice & there's no place I'd rather be than on the water...Here is a few pics... [Linked Image]

Those 14 fish you caught were the hold outs. You've already caught every other fish in FCL this year hooked

Nice fish. I hope the tea colored water isn’t a golden algae bloom. Those can be really bad.

I fished it last week a couple times, the first day I sucked and only caught 15 or so. The next time out I adjusted based on where I was seeing the bait and crushed them, 60 fish or so. All I had to do was change how I typically fish the lake and follow the bait. I don’t think anything is wrong other than the fish have changed for whatever reason, we just have to change with em.

I found most of the bait in 25-40 ft, hardly any in the 10-15 ft range. Of course, this time of year things are changing daily seems like.

Something else I saw, 3 of the larger bass I caught had a fish tail sticking out of their throat. The tail wasn’t forked like a gizzard and were good sized, so I’m thinking they were blue gill or small tilapia.

Minner...How big were your biggest fish ? Can't tell you how many times I have had to clear tilapia out of the throats of bass out there. Also, were you catching most of your fish in 25 feet & deeper ?
Inquiring minds need to know... smile

Looking at the photo, the tilapia tail looks flat, so the ones you caught must have had sunfish inside... [Linked Image]

I fished yesterday in the overcast and it was less than stellar. Caught the majority of the 30 or so fish we caught shallow, but the moving bait bite was terrible. Fished some deep offshore spots and nothing. Lots of good shallow grass, but the fish weren't cooperating.
