    Had an afternoon trip today from 3 to 7 p.m. Fishing with father, son, and his friend we caught around 12 bass and lost around 6.

    We started at Jones Mill point on the left near the green channel buoy. We tried weightless Zoom white/silver flake flukes, an Alabama Rig, and chartreuse swimbaits. I marked fish on the down and side Imaging from the green buoy to the point of the bluff wall. All the fish were concentrating in 10 to 20 feet of water. We saw a few bust the surface so we started casting our lures to the action. We fished for 45 minutes getting a few bites without landing any. I was hoping they’d come up more aggressively and thought they might later in the evening.

    We headed to Stewart’s Creek and fished the long point at the mouth on the left that extends into the main channel. We noticed bass busting up on surface at the base of the point and I tied on crankbaits in white shad and chartreuse shad patterns that ran 6-8ft down. We started casting into 2 to 4 feet retrieving to 12ft where the boat was sitting. Over the next hour we caught 6 bass including 4 keepers on our crankbaits and a threadfin shad Strike King 1/2oz rattletrap.

    The bite started to slow down so we moved over to the Weakley lane bridge and got hammered by boat wake and decide to leave.

    We moved to the ridge out in the middle of the channel in front of Lamar Hill. We located a school of bass so I tied on 1/4oz shaky heads with Zoom trick worms in green pumpkin and started dragging in 10 to 12 feet while the boat was in 25ft. On our first cast we missed one after setting the hook. Over the next 30 minutes we had 3 or 4 bites that we did not connect with.

    We decided to go back to the Jones Mill since it was 5:30pm now. We went back and saw some action quickly and caught a couple nice hybrid, a few yellow bass, and a few largemouth bass! We caught them on silver buddy spoons and 1/8oz white/chart Slab Magnets with an underspin!

    With 30 minutes left we tried the Stewart’s Creek point again, but had zero success.

    We ended the day with a nice set of pictures and a bunch of smiles. Fun afternoon!
