Started fishing at 7:30. Earliest I have been to the lake in years. I usually don't fish the hot months. Caught 2 and had several misses on a Yellow Magic in the boat ramp cove. Went to a usually good channel swing bank and wasn't getting bit on the topwater or the 2.8 swimbait. I switched to dropshot and caught 2 in 2 casts. Rigged her up and we caught most of the fish on that. Some of the last fish we caught were up shallow around boulders. Lighter weight with 4 1/2" Roboworm in MMIII. She caught a couple on the 2.8. Clicked 19 by 11:45. Ate lunch on the water and headed for the ramp. Not as crowded as last time.
