We began the morning fishing topwaters on the main lake with no success. It seemed like a good morning for it but some mornings they just don't come up for it. This also gave me an indication that the artificial bite might be off a little. So I ran south and set up on two different points where I had them fishing with both crayfish and shiners. They proceeded to catch both smallmouth and largemouth. The fish were mostly around two pounds but finally a solid 4lb largemouth ate Rachel's shiner. The crayfish only worked on one of the points and not at all on the other.
We came in for a lunch break and went back out about about 1 pm. I showed them how to fish the senko on a wacky rig. Tim caught a nice 3lb smallmouth and Elizabeth managed to catch a couple of smaller ones on it. The senko bite does appear to have slowed some although it may just have been the day. Later that afternoon I set up on a point back on the main lake with the crayfish and literally burned what crayfish were left in about an hour. I think they landed eight, nothing really big, but enjoyed the fight on light tackle. All bass were released.
Good luck to all fishing the lake.
