    not sure about this week.
    about 10 days ago, i was catching lots of them up shallow [3-5ft] on squarebills in shad patterns, small walk-the-dog / stick baits in white and yellow. they were all shorts. no big ones. i’d guess that after this warming trend, they’ve moved back to a little deeper water. keep in mind, the shallow water i was finding them in was less than 20yds from deeper water. we caught them everywhere from elm hill marina, around hobson pike bridge, over to hong kong island. so, i guess middle and lower lake. anyone else have any current info? i’m heading out on friday afternoon for a little bit before the holiday rush.

    Like J, I have not seen any in about two weeks. I was catching some around Bryants Grove, but the warm temperature has moved them out. I was catching mine on topwater, crankbaits and Zoom Trick worms.

    Ya, September it will pick up! Looks like after this next hot few days the temperatures are going to cool off again!
