During the day, the quality fish seem to be deep, like in 40 FOW.
I did a lot of moving around searching for a good bite, but was only able to pick one up here and there. As the sun started to go down, the bite kicked into high gear. Lets see, I caught a five, a four, several threes, all in the discharge area on either a top water bait or a crank bait. During the day, there seem to be a better bite in the timber area, so you might hit those areas on your next trip first and save a little time looking around shallow grassy areas. I ended up with 18 bass in all. Even though the numbers were low, the quality was there which made for a good trip. No pics today, sorry.

I went to Fayette also on Monday. I spent a majority of the day hunting fish and caught a monster Tilapia 15"!
Caught a few fish on a frog around the reeds and one or two on a Rattlin vibe. Best fish were by the discharge where the water was at least 10 degrees warmer. A few on a H2o Crank and the rest on a WE spinnerbug..
8fish total only two good ones over 5 though. I knew there was a deep bite but I like to powerfish..

Yeah, there was no steady bite till the sun started to go down. I think I had like six bass before the sun went down and then it was almost back to back hook ups. My partner said his feet were like ice, so I called it a day much earlier than I had expected. I think I could have hooked up with several more fish over five pounds if I had stayed for a few more hours. Man, I hate to leave right when the action is just kicking into high gear, but I also know what it’s like to try and fish when your to cold to enjoy it, so I headed on in to the boat ramp for the dude.

Sounds like a great day. What a blast. Early in the morning, was that any good? Or were you not out in the early am
Got on the water around 11:30 am, so I have no clue how the early bite was. From what I've heard or read on other post, it sounds like there is an early morning bite till the sun comes up and then they head for the deeper water.
