Well...After getting skunked last week at Decker, it sure was GREAT to be back on my home lake. Got there around 9:30 & fished until 5 pm. The parking lot had 6 trucks in it when I got there which was the fewest people I have seen out there in a long while...glad they had to FINALLY go back to work ! The weather was awesome with light winds from the East. Water temp is back in the mid 60s on most of the lake. Ended up with 1 lucky catfish, 2 lonely sunfish, and 51 hungry bass. I was going to clean the catfish if I caught another one, but did not so it was released (lucky). There didn't seem to be any other sunfish in the area where I tried for them, so they had to be lonely. I did end up with some bigs today...a couple over 4 and one over 6 which absolutely made my day. The fish in the timber were caught on a shakey head setup 3/16 oz with a Gary Yamamoto worm in the color Elders Magic. The rest were caught on a 1/4 oz Ned Rig with a 4" Z-Mann in various colors. These are officially my 1st fish of 2023 rockon

Jamie...I did not measure any...I just check the weight if I think they may be bigger than 4 lbs. The odds of catching a big fish are better now because the females are full of eggs. But they are also feeding on shad for sure...

Thanks Leo...You did pretty good yourself with that giant smallmouth partyon

Excellent day on the water Steve. Good way to start the new year.
I'm going back to Decker Friday hopefully to get revenge.
