    Bass fished yesterday for several hours and had an awesome time. Water temperature was 65 degrees when I left Fate Sanders Marina and headed to the first cut through. Fishing the long shoal that comes out at the end of the cut through on the left, we caught four bass including one keeper. I kept the boat in 6 to 8 feet of water and cast a 3/16oz Shaky Head with a green pumpkin Zoom trick worm on top of the shoal in 3 to 4 feet of water….. dragging slowly. Next we moved up to the second cut through and started on the left bank and at the mouth. Continuing with the shaky heads(the entire day) I kept the boat in 4-6ft and cast to the old fence row with stumps. We caught two short fish there. As we reached the middle and saddle of the second cut through we caught three more including one keeper right off the bank in 3ft. Next week trolled to the right side of the bank and fished down the next 50 yards of boulders and isolated wood. We caught five bass there including another keeper(only being two and a half pounds). There were a ton of fish loaded on this bank and we missed several. Our next stop was up across from Bryant Grove boat ramp along the long point that comes off the bluff wall. The water was much clearer there with a foot-and-a-half visibility. I did not fish The long point that comes out, rather I stayed close to the bank and fished all the boulder rocks in 2 to 4 feet of water. We caught three bass up there, one being three pounds and lost another good one at least three pounds. Next I moved up to the Four Corners cut through and fish the boulder rocks up in between the danger buoys. I kept the boat in four to eight feet of water while we cast into 5 feet trying to focus on the big boulders. We only caught one short fish there in an hour and decided to move. We moved to the mouth of Bryant’s Grove Cove and fished the left bank. We focused on a hundred yard stretch where the big row of boulder’s come out from the into 12 feet. We missed five bass on our shaky heads and caught one about three and a half pounds. Here I kept the boat in 8 to 12 feet of water while we cast into 4 feet. As it started getting dark we packed up and headed in for the day. It was a fun afternoon receiving a ton of bites and catching quite a few fish. I will be out Saturday and we will see what the bite is like down lake.
