Great to see several fishing reports coming in - means the weather must be cooling!  Wife and I ventured out to Back Side of the Moon for the first time.  So glad this property is in the club.  As everyone has stated - it's out there and the drive in is "entertaining" and actually it was a lot of fun.  Saturday was still hot - mid 90's, water temp 77 to 80 - slight breeze/very manageable.  Water clarity at the usual 8''.  We managed to land 25 including one slab crappie and a few nice bass - topped off with a 6lb 7oz and a 5lb 14oz.  Also, a 4 and three in the 3's.  A couple around 2, and the rest "lbers".  Best luck on white paddle tail swimbait and sexy shad lipless - fish were generally 5-7 FOW relating to the large rocks.  The 6-7 was a football and almost albino - presumably a combo of the tubid water and she was right on the bottom in 7 FOW - maybe been there a long time!  Pics of the bigger one and a double - which is always super fun.

You are correct. The bass are white in color, because of the turbidity in the water. When the water is very clear, the bass are generally very dark.
