Total Fish/Sizes : 14/ most 2-4 lbs
Lures Used : Ned rig/beetle spin

Caught 3 nice fish (3+ lbs) shallow in the cove opposite the dam amongst the trees on Orange/Green and Hot Snake (Pearl/blue-black) Ned rig. Last cast in the cove hung up. As I attempted to troll to the snag, I wrapped a trotline or net (that was anchored to the bottom) around my prop. Couldn't tilt or lift the motor and had only needlenose pliers in the boat. Short version: Took off the motor, disassembled prop, blew onshore, reassabled prop as best I could, made it back to the launch. Fished the bank at the launch site and caught 9 more just outside the weedline on any color of beetle spin I threw (1/4 oz) No luck with swimbaits, Whopper plopper,  lipless cranks. Caught 2 on Ned rig. 

I'm not trying to blame or complain, but to inform. Sometimes stuff just happens. 

Glad I stuck it out and my last minute trip was positive overall. Fish we're hearty and pretty aggressive, especially on the beetle spins, one crappie was almost 2 lbs.
