    Got back in town last night from a week at the beach with the family……ready to do some serious fishing! This morning I met up with the Hagman around 6:30am and we started at the Youth Inc camp fishing the 10ft hump just passed the second cut through. After two brushpiles, 6 short crappie, and 1 keeper in 30 minutes we packed it up and headed down lake.

    I stopped at the Four Corners side of Mouse Tail Island and started fishing brushpiles in 14ft-18ft. We caught a few on a chartreuse Crappie Magnets with a pink 1/8oz jig, but minnows were dominating! After 8-10 bruspiles we had around 18 nice keepers! We moved around to the west side of the island facing Hobson Pike bridge and fished 2 brushpiles….catching 3 more keepers and several shorts.

    I thought I’d try a few new brushpiles I rarely fish. I motored over near Fireman’s Hole(fourth point on the right if your coming from Four Corners) and we caught 10 more with 2 keepers on a 15ft rock pile with a stakebed.

    The rain was starting to move closer so we decided to try a couple more trees and then head in. Over near the cove at Pooles Knob campground we fished a big brushpiles in 15ft next to the fish attractor buoys off the main channel……nada.

    Our last spot before we got soaked was on the flat across from Hong Kong Island. Fishing a stake bed in 12ft we caught 10, including 3 more keepers!

    Short, but fun day back on the water! I think we ended up with 23 keepers! I’ll be bass fishing all Saturday and look forward to posting a good report!!!!

    You dropping to the bottom then cranking up 2 -3 turns? I got out Saturday before the crowd, met Trey on his way out. I fished by the scout camp and caught short fish but no keepers, then went to the bend straight out from the camp other side of the cut through, put 4 nice keepers in the boat trolling hot grubs along the drop off 12 to 16 fow. Went to Hong Kong brush piles and didn’t get a bite, by that time (10:30) the boat and jet skies were popping out of the wood work so I headed in. Wish I would have moved from the first spot sooner but when your catching short fish you keep thinking the next one is going to be a keeper. Had a beautiful morning none the less.
