Hit Choke today from like 7:30-4:30. It was my 1st time back on the lake in years and it sure was different. The water was higher than I have ever seen it and very stained, especially near the river. And holy crap that lake has gotten ridiculously popular. There was always at least one boat fishing in front of and behind us, both ramp parking lots were full. Fishing was very tough for us and I was hearing a lot of the same from others. Ended up boating a handful of small fish 1.5lbs tops on shallow cranks, not very choke like. Tried other tactics but could only get the reaction bite. I did lose a few others including a 3+ at the boat bc I think they were just slapping it. There was not a cloud in the sky. I will not give up on choke but it was very disapointing. Water temps started at 67 and rose to 72 - lol.
