    The other day I fished from 6:30 to 2 o’clock with BCGS guides Justin Armstead and Eric Dickens. We started off chasing hybrids around Hobson Pike Bridge. The water temperature was 48 degrees with 1.5 foot visibility. Casting heavy jigs with white swimbaits into 10-30 feet we caught two hybrids in an hour and decided to move. We looked here, there, and everywhere Mid-lake, but could not find any until we reached Bryant’s Grove. After an hour of searching in 10 – 30 feet we dropped the trolling motor. We fished for a couple hours there only catching three more, but they were not as big. We decided to bass fish for a while and pulled out our Alabama rigs shad colored 1/2oz Strike King rattle traps. I motor down to Suggs Creek and fish the first three points on the right heading and the long point on the left at the green channel buoy. Sitting in 15 to 20 feet and casting to the rocks in 4-6 feet I retrieved slowly and never had a single bite. We also fished the big point across from Hole in the Wall bluff and struck out there as well. With just an hour left we decided to motor to Fall Creek, but quickly turned around because the water temperature was only 45 degrees. We cruised into Spring Creek and stopped just passed the first hard turn to the left. We fished all the rocks with Alabama Rigs and rattle traps without a bite. The water was a little stained with less than 1foot visibility at 52 degrees. Once free reach the back flat across from the finger coves the water jump to the 53-54 and cleared over a 1.5ft visibility. We pulled out our Heddon Jr spooks in red/white, yellow/clear and brown/white and fished the flat for 45 minutes catching 6 including 4 keepers. It was a great way to end the day. Going to try to get out in the next couple days for more hybrid.
