we fished priest yesterday from about 4:30-dark.
we caught 10-15 fish with a couple keeper largemouth [2-2.5lbs]. the smaller fish were mostly smallmouth. they hit topwaters shallow around 7 points. then we moved and caught a couple in deeper water [15-20ft] around hole in the wall. the rest came shallow on squarebills and topwates around elm hill marina. we also fished the flats btwn hobson pike bridge and 4 corners and zero’d. we lucked out first thing and dodged the hard rain first thing by making a high speed run over to the points around porter wagner. of note, we did see a lot of larger shad [gizzard?] schooled up around the point at hole in the wall. they were in several large balls just flipping and popping on the surface, but with no fish busting on them. seems like it could be a timing deal.
