    Fished 5-9:30. First stop was the hump across from Bryant’s Grove ramp. I was throwing a pearl colored Deep Little N crankbait and got nothing. Partner caught a hybrid about 12-13 inches on a shaky head with plum colored finesse worm in about 7ft on the channel side of the hump. Headed on down lake to Pear Island, the one Brian has been catching fish on the north side just before Hobson Pike bridge. Nothing at all. Tried shaky head, crankbait, buzzbait, and texas rigged worm. Tried casting into 3-4 ft. then moved out a little to cast into 6-8. Nada. Moved over to the pocket on the right just before the bridge and partner picked up 3 small LM on his plum colored finesse worm he caught the hybrid on earlier. None measured but were still fun. He caught em on the rip rap about 5 ft. deep. Headed back upstream and fished the main point on the right at the mouth of Stewarts Creek. Fished down that bank to just before ski cove and turned around and fished it again headed back towards the ramp. I got a LM that barely measured at 15 1/8″ on a white 3/8 oz. hawg buzz just before dark. He nailed after about 3 cranks of the reel in 2-3 ft. of water, not far off the bank. Partner picked up 2 more LM after dark. They almost measured at 14 and 14 1/2. He got em on a dark purple colored brush hog, texas rigged, in 5-6 ft. Then as we were just about to leave, he picks up what we guessed to be 7-8 lb flathead cat on his brush hog!! Almost kept him, but he decided to release. Wished we had had a better trip, but it’s better than zeroing

    I may have saw you. I was sitting on the island just south of the bridge in the fisher deck boat with the kids swimming off the back. I caught a few but wasnt fishing hard. We rolled back to the very first cove and point on the right coming out of four corners inside the wake zone where everyone fishes from the shore. I had the whole family with me and it was just the calmest place. Made a few casts on that long deep point. Had a little 10″ steal 2 trick worms off me and 4 hookset misses before I caught that little turd. The small tourney was launching and a guy was sitting there watching and laughing with me. He took off and on the very next cast, I hooked and landed a solid 4 lber. It took off and went straight down, I thought it was a catfish. I caught 5 more off that point.
