Attended Dave’s Ned class on Thursday night, so I put the ned to work Friday morning.  I tried really hard to be careful with the Super Glue but I still found my fingers sticking to the bait or hook.  :wacko:  Got on the water about 6:45 am and fished until 12:30 pm.  Even at 8:00 am it was HOT!!!  Water temps were 85.5 to 88.  Struggled to find fish.  Ended up catching 10 with 3 of them keepers.  Biggest was 16 inches.  Lost 2 others that would have measured and one of those was really nice.  It spit the hook.  The 3 keepers were caught along a short stretch of flat bank VERY close to the Little Sac channel.  They all came in 3 to 7 feet of water.  I caught them around 11:30 am.  I probably spent too much time looking for them in deeper water.  Hard to believe with water temps that high that they are that shallow.  I saw a 12 or 13 inch bass bust some bait within a foot or two of the bank.  That was around 11:00.  Green pumpkin seemed to be the best but I also caught a couple on pb&j.  I also tried a shad colored Deal, but only had 1 bite on it and it only thumped it once and dropped it.
