Water clear, 71 degrees surface temp., wind 0-10 southeast, partly cloudy. Lake level 1.82 ft. low and very slowly dropping again. Black bass excellent to 9 lbs......... Lots of numbers being caught in the 4-6 lb. range. Seems these year classes have woke up in the last two weeks. Last trip I had 50+ fish and quit counting at 50 due to the outstanding bite that was going on. If I saw they were too small I would actually let them jump and throw the crankbait themselves. It is that good ! Anyway, DD22's (bluegill/YELLOW BELLY) , soft plastics in any combo of watermelon or green pumpkin, topwaters are starting to pick up with the larger fish coming on them as well as deep diving suspending jerkbaits. Only bite that really ISN'T on is spinnerbaits. Soft plastic jerkbaits in a double carolina rig (long leader,short leader,three way swivel) is tearing the 1-4 lb. class new one's as they are concentrating on the cannibal side and feeding on small fry and small bluegills. The green back, silver side, yellow belly perch are on beds right now out to 20 ft., as well as some largemouth still on beds as well. Key color for your cranks is this perch color or baby bass right now. Stripers and whites are schooling heavily in Evans and SanPedro. Regards.
