    Wow, what a difference a few cool days make! Managed to get off a little early today and decided to go hit Hoover for a few hours. Launched out of redbank around 2:00 o'clock and marked surface temps of 66 degrees. (Last Friday was 74.5 degrees)

    Headed across to the flats and immediately got into whitebass jigging a gold/firetiger vibee. Caught a few dozen and decided to move on to bigger/better things. Found some schooled up Crappie in 16 fow and caught a few real quick. Decided to drop anchor due to the wind, and managed to spook them away. :rolleyes: Lastly, I made a few passes on the flat with wally divers and shad raps to no avail. Still no 'eyes...:(

    If the weather pattern holds, I figure the bite will pick up dramatically in the following days. Looks like a great weekend to get out and fish.

    Yeah, been in kinda' a draught situation on Hoover this year. Still can't say where all the 'eyes are, but with any luck I may find some soon.

    I had a few that pushed upwards of 15-16", but most were in the 10-13" range. They were really hitting aggressively - nearly jerk the rod out of your hand if you weren't careful. :D
