Fished a half day this afternoon. The lake is sitting at 397.5 (5.5 ft below full pool). Water temp at the 515 East public ramp was 56.0. Warmest water I found this afternoon was 59.2, and that’s where we caught the majority of our fish. Finished the afternoon with 14 in the boat, with 2 or 3 more quick releases. Not a bad afternoon numbers wise, but I couldn’t find the big bite today. They’re somewhere close by, and I’ll get them dialed in before long.

Shallow crankbaits accounted for most of our fish today, and we caught them in 2-6 ft of water. Chartreuse was tough to beat, but we did catch a few on Sexy Shad.
