One of those days where it was flat calm early in the AM, then got blow your hat off windy later in the morning.  Caught about 15 bass, only one made the keeper ,mark.  Mix of all types, LM, smallies, spots and a mean.  Got a few on the Ned, a few on a spinner bait (very shallow off wind blown gravel), and a few on the Rock Crawler.  WT 58-59.

Same deal for me.  I launched up the James to flat 59 degree water.  Caught 3 pretty quick and then went dock hopping trying to catch a few crappie for the cast Iron.  Caught 2 and lost 2 more toads, so I released the two I had.  A couple of my favorite docks had been replaced with bright new shiny docks and I could not get bit on them.  Found the crappie just under the floats on one old ratty wood dock where the end reached out to 30′.  Kind of fun shooting that jig, takes some practice and super boat control, but it got me a 1/2 dozen bites, without ever leaving the boat.

Bought 10 AM the wind really kicked up and the surface temps were climbing hitting 61 by the time I quit.  To much wind for the crappie deal, so I tried to get the bass going again, and had two more on a jerkbait, in the wind.  Caught  the early bass on a jig.  All the bass were SM with only 1 solid keep.  If thinking 15′
