Haven't been out in a couple weeks and was going through fishing withdrawl. Was glad to get the call from Tim (nitroguy) to go fish LA.
Weather was mostly cloudy, wind 10-15, air temp around 80 deg in morning - upper 90s in afternoon. Water temp 79 - 82 deg.
We put in at 360 around 7am and started just south of the bridge throwing crank baits and swim baits. Picked up 1 bass on the crank and started fishing worms and jigs on the bluffs. Caught 1 more bass on the TRig.
Moved a little further north of 360 and graphed some fish that were holding in 10'. Went back to throwing crank baits and picked up a few more small bass by going up and down the gradual bank where we marked fish. This bank had some grass at the edge of where the water gets a bit deeper. After the crank bite died we headed across the lake and fished docks with TRig and shakey head worms. We caught a few more bass doing this so stuck with it until we left the water around 3pm. We ended up with 14 bass today, only 3 keepers in the bunch...nothing picture worthy.
So, in summary-

What worked: sexy shad and firetiger shallow to medium diving crank bait fished over grassy banks. Texas rig and shakey head worms -rattlesnakes in watermelon red and finesse type worms in green pumpkin.

What didn't work: jigging spoon, swimbait, football jigs w/craw  or hula grub trailer (the fish didn't seem to want the big stuff today).

Good luck to those fishing the Wed nighter.

Good report Bone, did you guys get far enough north to tell if they were releasing water while y'all were out there? I could never tell when they actually start flowing it.
We never made it past City Park. They weren't releasing water while we were there though the pleasure boaters kept the water churning nicely...
