Launched at dawn and fished until noon.  Air temp was 54 when I launched and close to 84 when I left.  Had a very brief early top water bite, caught several short spots on a 90 Plopper before it quit.  Started throwing a Carolina rig around with a black Trick Worm, and got some scattered fish on it off gravel points and in a pocket near a point.  The c-rig fish were shallow, anywhere from 5 – 10 feet deep.  Later in the morning I switched to a green pumpkin worm and got a few on it.

About 10 AM there started to be a little breeze, so I worked a square bill in and around flooded buck brush, picked a few more up doing that, and lost a nice large mouth that jumped and tossed the SB.

Every once in a while I would work a black/blue 3/8 oz jig with a black twin tail trailer, and had a few grab that also.  Caught several smallies on the jig.

Caught a little north of 20 bass, 3 or 4 being keeper sized.  Also caught a coupe of 17″ walleye.  I brought ice with me with the intent of keeping any keeper sized wallies, but I think the keepers sensed that I had ice in the boat and stayed away.

Water is still a stained green, but may have cleared just a bit in the last couple of days.  Temps were 78-80.
