Hit GT for a few hours late Friday afternoon to get some lake therapy before the weekend windstorm, putting in about 3:30. Last minute wild hair trip w/no takers so went solo.  Air temp was in the mid 80's w/north breezes, water temps 63 to 65, dropped to around 60-61 after dark.  First 2 hours worked the cove on the east side of Jim Hogg, then along the main lake bluffs across from Cedar Breaks drifting toward the dam.  Threw drop shot w/rattesnake (my "go to" on GT), football jig w/hula grub, CR senko, TR power worm, H2O baby bass crank, & Bomber flat A firetiger crank...and not a bite.  Was looking like a pretty typical day for me on GT, but who cares, the weather's awesome and it was great just to be out.  About 5:30 had just strapped down my gear to move to another spot and as I was drifting by noticed some surface activity out in the mouth of the north shore timbered cove nearest the dam.  Threw a 1/2 oz chrome/blk trap into the area and it was on.  Hooked up on first 8 casts, and for about the next hour got bit on average probably every 2nd to 5th cast with a number of back to back hook ups.  LMB's & whites mixed in the schools, & were biting in about the 5 to 10' depth in 30-35' water.  Lost count, but caught probably around 25 or so in that hour, with 6 or 7 keeper size whites and a few decent LMB's.  Only stopped once to take a pic of this LMB that measured 18 1/2 inches. The bite turned off at sunset, so kicked back with a coldie and a smile, and thanked the fishing gods for such a rare bite (for me, at least) on G'Town.  

Tight lines-
