Hit the river about 6:30 am. The bite was good on top water for smallies but the real big fish were hard to find. Caught only 1 that was a WOW kind of fish. The others were of course fun, just not big. The big one had the popr half way down his throat. Lots of bait fish jumping so they are definitly aggressive right now. Switched to a aglia spinner and caught 1 more smallie, 3 white bass and 2 gar. That's why I like the top water bite, only smallies and a occasional WB on it. River is in excellent shape to fish. Good luck!
