Linesides: Fair the fish are scatter threw out the water colum right now. This makes catching big numbers hard right now. You can be pulling your bait right on the edge of the river channel and mark a school at 30 feet. By the time you get your baits down there they are gone. And then another school comes on your screen it my be at 12 feet. And then another at 24 feet. This wouldn’t be so bad if they would come up to eat. But they want the bait right in there face right now. Here is what I am doing with this happens I am putting 4 down rods out one at 12 feet. One at 18 feet. One at 24 feet and another one at 30 feet.. You want double very often but you will hook up on at least one when these schools past under the boat. Flat lines are also working early morning and late afternoon. The South End of the lake is the best right now. From Clear Creek to the Dam.

Top Water – The top water bite has been hit or miss this week. One morning they will come up in good numbers. Then the next moring you may not see a single fish bust the top. Hopefully it will get more consistent in the new few weeks..
