The water was indeed back up a bit. I got two small keeper LM in the boat and missed another. I also caught a small pike on a craw colored -1. The bites came on a white buzz, and the spinner and tube struck out. The water was stained, but suprisingly clear. I expected it to be much darker.
I also saw a guy catch what looked like a 6 or 7 pound LM from the bank using "chubs". I think they were fishing for pike, but he had to settle for the biggest bass he'd ever landed. He was taking it home for dinner.
