Launched at sunrise and had my first slab less than 5 minutes later, sharpshooting deep in a creek channel. Lots of fish suspended and they were real nice size. Moved into some deep brush and found a whole lot more fish,, so I fished it a while catching many. Explored some other deep and shallower brush, with mostly the same results. Left them biting at 10:30 with 15 keepers for dinner.
They wanted 3.5” soft baits today, in a pale chartreuse color. Had never caught a fish on that bait until today! You never know…Tried several go-to colors and sizes but none produced the same results. Dead sticking or “raising” them very slowly got strikes. Subtle takes. Missed a good many, never felt them until they spit it out.
