You catch those on slabs again? I’m on decker right now and only one small hybrid so far bouncing a chart slab off the bottom. Tried DS with flukes and sassy shad but no luck. I’ve caught them b4 out here DS with flukes so I don’t know what I’m doing wrong this time. Question for you are you spot locked or doing a controlled drift?

Nah we got DECKERED yesterday! 1 short hybrid and 1 bass each came on a slab. We tried DS'ing flukes, sassies and other paddle tail plastics as well. We even trolled up half the lake with umbrella rigs, hell pet and a heavy MAL with no takers. Had the thumper going too.

I have a customer in Tennessee who sent me a video of his livescope loaded with crappie while he was using his Bobo thumper. He said all he could catch was crappie. Another one in Arkansas uses his for blue cats. Many species will respond to thumping.

Looks like a perfect morning to be out there! The last 2 times we've been out there has been with bluebird skies.

Out on the water at 9am. Water temp 57, fish were scattered everywhere. The weather has them a little off.

Chatter bait working it from shallow to deep producing, CR also working well.

Started marking fish 38 FOW and decided to see if jigging slabs was still hot...Fresh drum decided to hit the slabs, first for me...

The slab continued to work well, until my 2 fluke teasers trailing behind the boat were cobbled up by 2 LM, what a tangled mess....after that seemed like swim baits started producing. A rig produced only LM. Not sure why the hybrids are being finicky....all in all. A good outing except for all the PANICKED fishermen going 60 MPH to where?....they'd go by 60, stop fish a few minutes and back to the throttle. Wouldn't care accept the A holes go by close even with 80% open water.....just saying, if catching fish is the goal, they obviously fail most of the time, otherwise they wouldn't be so PANICKED to get to the next spot.

BB fishermen , they own the lake just ask !
A suggestion with regard to the Hybrids, bloody chicken livers can put a lot of blood in the water column. Put a chunk on a jig head .

That 'ol chicken liver does work out there! The times I've tried it I put it on a regular bait hook and wrap sewing thread around it to keep it on the hook.
