Posted by 9LB on OA forum.  Spent the entire day fishing Saturday.  We had 2 boats out. 1 was jiggin for walleyes and crappies and I went bass fishing.  Water temp was 68, thought is would drop a little more then that.

Walleye/crappie boat – they caught a ton of fish but only about 6 keeper crappies and no keeper walleyes.  Worm seemed better then the minnow.  They fished the brush piles and steep banks and bottom bounced.

Bass Fishing was on FIRE !!!  I figured it would be spinner baits and crank baits but that was not the ticket.  The PBJ jig just hammered them.  It seemed they were just inside main lake points, not quite to secondary points.  You needed to find a little drop off and some chunk rock.  It also helped to have a little sparkle/glitter in the trailer.  I aslo cuaght about 6 on the wiggle wart.  I caught a few on a crankbait but I was even having more luck swimming the jig vs a crankbait.  I guess they are hammering the crawdads and not after the shad?  Had a hard time finding any real shad piles or bait balls. Most fish were 6 – 20 feet of water.  If I did not count them you know we caught a bunch I am sure it was over 30 with no real biguns but plenty of nice 2.5 lbers.  Had so MANY BIG fish following lures to the boat I actually started figure 8’s at the boat like when you musky fish.  Actually had 2 bite that way right at the boat.  Great weather, Great Fishing.
