    Not much to report BUT here it is...Arrived at lake about 4 PM put in at Red Bank and immediately went straight over to LOTW area. Didn't mark many fish anywhere but set up to troll crankbaits and a worm harness rig. We trolled South and then came upon a lady in an inflatable rubber raft and she seemed distressed. She called out to us for help telling us she had lost a part for her paddle and couldn't go anymore. We towed her back accross the lake and then she discovers she had lost her non-floating bag that contained her car keys, it got lost when she turned her raft over. I made a call to her daughter for her they talked and arranged for a ride so we went back to fishing. We trolled from the Pontoon Club North up the big flat. I managed to lose my deep diving Mistake pattern Bandit crankbait within 2 minutes the first time I ever used it:( If you see it floating out there get it for me thanks. We got to Misfits spot and I started casting and retrieving a clown 1/4 oz Vib"e and had a sugeye on quick. He hit it hard and ran quick and I thought it might be a bass but it was a saugeye about 13-14 inches and it had a huge shad down its throat with the tail dangling out of its mouth. I don't really know why it hit the Vib"e but it had both trebles buried in its jaw and he hit on the lift and pull so I know he went after it. That's it, not another bite but them schools of shad were thick and fish were nailing them all over the place. An afterthought I had was that one of us should have been throwing a shallow crankbait as you could see some nice swirls in there amidst the shad. We were in a green aluminum Triton boat couldn't have missed it if you saw us.
    Tight Lines to All....................
