    Well finally got my stuff together about 11am and hit the campground ramp
    again. Wind out of the west around 12-15mph. Water temps ranged 36-38
    degrees so right down the lake I go to the bay by Eddie's baitshop and get bit
    on the 2nd cast. I missed him, I guess I wasn't ready.:D
    Fooled around down there for 2 more hours and headed for C-5
    Water temp was 38-39 but I don't think that was as much of a factor as the
    weedbed I fished. Pulled 3 crappies and 6 bass from that bed in 2 hours.
    One bass went 4.2lb and just under 20'', the rest were 10-13''. All 3 crappies
    were nice, over 10''. All fish came on the same crappie sized slider grub rigged
    on an 1/8oz jighead fish in a lift and drop motion. It had to hang on a weed
    and be shaken off to get bit.
    Did see 1 other boat out there but don't know who it was or how he did.
    The lake is 99% open, all ramps are open. Get out there if you can the
    water wont be cold long.:D

  4. What no smallies? I've caught a few there in the past. Usually south of campgrounds. Wish I was there!! Good job on the 4lb'er now you've got something to beat for this year.

    JB, no my friend not near as bad as that day.:D

    jeff-bob you got one on me, I've never seen a smallie come out of nimi.
    Fished that lake for over 15 years but no smallies. I've only heard stories.:eek:
