Showed up at 12:30pm and because of heavy rains over the last week, the water was very murky with lots of debris along the shorelines and the lake was about 1-2 feet above full. Water visibility was about 6 inches. I fished hard on all parts of the lake for about 3 hours and did not even get one bump. Light rain started at 4pm and I was not tough enough to stick it out. Jon boat worked great. Saw 2 cormorants when I arrived and they flew off when I got out of the truck. Makes me nervous when I see those birds on a bass fishing pond. I have caught plenty of fish here before so I’m chalking it up to dirty water and cool temps. Fish On!
