Overall, it was a pretty tough day for me today. We caught fish everywhere we stopped, but we never found a large concentration of fish today. Water temp at the ramp this morning was 58.7 and it warmed to 61 this afternoon. We caught most of our fish on drop shots and black/blue Santone jigs with LFT Hyper Freak. Here are a couple of pics from today:

The bite is definitely picking up as a big number of fish have made the move to ultra shallow water since noon yesterday.

Water temp on the main lake was 59 and we found water as warm as 67 in the back of a creek and the fish were bunched up back there.

We caught a bunch of fish today on a white 3/8 oz chatterbait with a LFT Live Magic Shad in Albino Shad color. We also caught a bunch of fish on a Junebug colored Texas rigged LFT Flipper.

Most of our fish came from less than 3 ft of water.

The bite seems to be improving with our current warming trend. Water temp on the main lake when we started this morning was 54 degrees and by mid-afternoon, we found water as warm as 62 degrees.

Secondary points produced best for us today as we boated 13 and lost several. Many fish were slapping at the bait and not eating it.

Chatterbaits trailed with an LFT Live Magic Shad accounted for our better fish today, but we caught a few on squarebill and lipless crankbaits in crawfish patterns.

Had a half day afternoon this afternoon. We found the bite to be fairly slow this afternoon as we were only able to boat 5 largemouths and 5 HUGE white bass today. Water temps ranged from 52-53 degrees in the areas we fished.  The highlight of our day was Gus’ first jig fish. I have them again tomorrow and we’re planning on putting that Santone jig to work.

Our jig fish were in 8 ft of water and we were using a 3/4 oz Peas and Carrots Santone jig with a Magic Craw Swirl LFT Hyper Freak. If you’re not using a Hyper Freak on the back of your jig, you need to try it. It will put extra fish in your boat.
