    fished the Tusc today for about a half an hour......i was killing time between 2 appointments that i had.......i was pleasantly surprised ........i had 2 hits in the short amount of time that i was there ........i landed one nice fat 13 inch smallie and lost another that looked like it was about the same size............i had both fish on a small cordell big O crankbait (shad colored)............i also threw a black buzzbait and a smoke colored texas rigged tube bait and didnt have any hits on those 2 baits !!! it was a beautiful day to be out .........oh yeah the fish were located right in the middle of the river just below a riffle area in about 4-5 ft of water !!!

    SORRY the pictures arent the best !!! but i was fishing alone again and didnt have anyone to take the pictures for me !!
