After a nice start, we struggled for a bit to find some fish that would bite.  We went to lunch with only 6 fish in the boat, and we only had 7 by 2:00 when I decided to move out to the main lake and fish for some staging fish.  I could kick myself in the rear for not making the move a lot sooner.  From 2:00 to 4:00, we boated 14 more and missed a couple more.  Shaky head LFT Zig Zag, Carolina rigged LFT Zig Zags, and drop shots all caught fish in the 5-10 ft range.  All but a couple of these fish were prespawn females.

It’s hard to leave the spawning pockets when you are seeing 63-70 degree water temps, but we just couldn’t get a consistent bite.  Those fish will show up very soon, so keep your eyes open for cruisers.
