Fished a few days this past weekend and caught quite a few. Caught pretty much everything off one location…4 trips in a row. Fished an outside bend main lake point about a mile or so above the mouth of the Kings with topwater early in the morning. The fish would move in and out of the shallow side feeding on small shad. Plenty surfacing out in the main channel as well. Honestly, they were just here and there…and everywhere around this timbered point. Tried to force the topwater bite but had most success swimming a grub through the surfacing fish. As the sun came up, caught plenty more on a small jigging spoon of the Cabelas variety. Had my 8 year old son with me and he caught his first “solo” fishies (he cast, he reeled, he set the hook…). He had a blast, and for┬áthe first time, asked to get up early and do it again the next day…and the next. Saw and caught fish on the graph from 15 – 50+ feet. My son said it was “cooler than playing Minecraft,” so a small victory there.

Tried to make the shallow bite work but just couldn’t get it going.

Thanks to everyone for all the reports.
