I fished Lake Side in Martins Mill on Saturday the 7th. Fished from 9:30 am to 5:20 pm. Caught 13 fish, 3 were under 14” and were culled. 6 of the fish weighed 3 ¾ lb to 4 lbs. Lipless in red color caught 9 fish and the biggest fish. the bigger fish absolutely smoked the Lipless bait knocking slack in the line. Another 4 fish were caught on a  small swimbait 3" Spark Shad on Okashira Screwhead 1/8 oz. I caught 4 fish in the first hour of fishing mostly shallow in 3 to 4 ft of water and hit a lull midday and caught the majority from 3:45 pm to 5 pm in the middle in deeper water.

It was a partly cloudy day with winds 13 to 17 MPH out of the NNW. Temp was right around 58 degrees most of the day. The water was stained almost to the point of muddy at about 8” of visibility.

Other baits tried but with no bites were Chatterbait, various crankbaits, jig 3/8 oz, jerk baits, spinner bait, and Ned Rig.

Thanks to the land owner and PWF for making this trip possible.
