    Ha ha, I'm here, I'm here.

    It's been hard until recently, we were fishing on the bottom and not doing any good really, just a couple fish, but then about a week ago we tried slip bobbers set at 10-15ft deep and sure enough it was the ticket. Hard to fish from the bank on that lake, not much access. Are you fishing in a boat jayjay? Use Shad, Bream, White Perch, and stuff like that for bait, live is good under the bobbers but cut bait will work good also, esspecially if it's shad. We have really been doing good with the bobbers, they fish are concentrated around the "thermocline" right now which is a section of the water with the most oxygen.

    Here's the pattern for now, it will probably last the whole summer.

    Bobbers set from 10-15 ft deep, Early morning time, Main lake points around 45ft deep, and Main Lake Channel, and humps out in the middle of the lake which require depthfinders to find.
