Put in at 7:30am at Orleans Trail to a nice 60 degree air temp and a pretty strong south wind. Water was 57 degrees.
Started in orleans and had 6-7 bass right away on a spinnerbait…stayed in the darn area to avoid the wind rolling down the main lake…fished in RB and crabtree and caught fish the whole time. Fish were definitely on the last deeper bank in the back of pockets that had wind blowing against them. After a few hours I braved the wind and headed for the back half of Price branch and continued to crush them on a spinnerbait. Did catch a couple on a jig and rock crawler but the spinnerbait ruled the cloudy windy conditions. Finished the day back in orleans trail and caught a couple more before the last fish of the day broke the arm of my spinnerbait. Got off the water at 3pm. Water temp ranged from 55 to 58 degrees. Fish were right on the bank. Caught 30-40 bass with probably 15 keepers with them mostly being largemouth…did have a couple keeper smallies and one keeper spot. No giants but did have 3 that were just over 3 lbs…rest were typical 15-16″ keepers. Had a great day…best day with a spinnerbait I have had in a long time. Didn’t see another boat all day either. Hopefully I can get back down later this week!! Got a bunch of them on my go pro…should have a video up in a day or so. Here are pics for now of a couple of the better ones.
