I fished a short, solo evening trip tonight to try to stay in touch with fish & bait movements and contacted fish at 3 locations.
Start Time: 5:30p
End Time: 8:00p
Air Temp: 74F at trip’s start.
Water Surface Temp: ~62.4F.
Wind: Winds were light from the SE at ~8.
Skies: Skies were fair.
I fished Area 888 and found fish in 12-13 feet on the shoulder of the submerged E. bank here. Fish were aggressive as I arrived, but then cooled off quickly. I boated 13 fish, all solid whites at ~13 inches, all on the slab, and all via an easing technique.
When things died down here, I moved to Area 100 and found fish here for the first time this year (much later than usual). The fish were tight to bottom, but hit readily, and numerous schoolmates would follow hooked fish up ~7-8 off bottom. I picked up 11 fish here with the action dying right at sunset.
I moved over to Area 116 and trolled a flatlined Rip Shad 200 one pass, yielding a single white bass and a single barely legal largemouth. By last seeing light I was headed back in.
TALLY = 26 Fish, all caught and released
