Met fellow member Bryan Buchan at dawn and we commenced with throwing topwaters from bank near the launch and had a good bite for 30min. Caught three (including a 19”) and had several smacks. Once the bite subsided we launched the club boat and headed into a stiff wind and choppy water to the last line of fences and the dam. After a good hour of  no action and burning up the battery fighting the stiff south wind, we retreated back to the mid lake and tried all the fencelines and obvious shoreline features with a limited number of bites but no success. Given that Bryan had to depart at noon, we moved back into the more sheltered channel area and caught two including a 17” and a dink to finish the morning with 5.

After a brief lunch I took the jon boat back out to the mid section of the lake and resumed fishing all of the fencelines with no luck. With a low battery I decided to head back to the launch before the dry front arrived from the north at 4pm and prepared to finish the day fising the channel from the bank. I caught 6 ranging in size from a 12” to a fat 19”  (see pic) between 4 – 5:30pm before calling it a day. 

Overcast in the morining and sunny condition after noon. The water temp started at 59F in the morning and  warmed up to 63F in the afternoon. Water clarity appeared to be about 2-3ft (once the sun popped out).

What worked: yellow magic popper, trig power worm, wacky watermelon senko, weightless trig senko (once the wind died) and a white/chartruse chatterbait with a watermelon zoom z craw trailer. We tried an assortment of other presentations but to no avail, including weedles swimbaits, rattletraps and sq bills along the fence lines.

Really enjoyed the company and this property, and look forward to returning later this spring!
