I caught 12 between 16in and 19in. It seems the slot on the lake is doing good for getting some larger fish in the lake.

On the water by 6am. The air temp was 85 degrees at 6am. :eek: Water temp was anywhere from 86 to 88.

Started off with Pop-R and shallow diving crank by the swim area. I picked up 3 nice fish pretty quick. Then started working around further up the lake and caught 2 more on 8ft diving crank bait. Switched over to a Rattlesnake on shakey head and worked most of the points and bolder out croppings to pick up the rest. I lost one really good fish. One of those that is too big to get out of the water when they jump. As soon as I set the hook the fish ran instantly to the middle of the lake ripping off drag. When she finally came up, she shook her head and my rattlesnake went flying. :'( She would have went 6lbs easy.

Off the water by 10:15 when it was already 95 degrees. :eek: Man it is fricken hot with little to no breeze.

When I go by myself, I prefer to use cedar breaks since it is protected water.  I hate having to pull my boat up on the rocks.  But the wakes and wind are not as bad in that cove, you can pull your boat close to the bank then drop your trolling motor to hold the boat close to the bank.

If they took up donations to build better docks that would not be out of the water 90% of the time, I would throw in some $$.

I got out yesterday AM; didn't have near the success TexasZX225 had.

Started out at 6am, fishing by the bluffs and tree line near Hogg park, had one small blow up on my gunfish.  After that, I tried everything on points and secondary points; nothing.

Around 10:30 fishing a fluke, I hooked into one good one at the bluffs across from Russell park, lost it at the boat.  Went back to the same brush pile 20 min. later hooked what I believe was the same fish and got him in the boat this time.  It was about 2lbs. and had seen better days; its left eye was sunken and not in good shape.  Nice fighter though.

Oh yeah,
Temp: Freakin' hot
Water Temp:  87 degrees
Wind:  Slight to none
Low traffic for Georgetown
