Finely got out for the first time this month (5-25-08) and tried in the back of gar creek cove around 5:15am. I was using frozen perch and shad. No takes until I caught some fresh bream. I caught a small channel and missed a few. Then I decided to go up the river about half way to the dam. I did about a half mile drift down stream with no hits. Then I tried the McDowell creek cove and only got a couple of small hits. Fished about 3.5 hours and only the one fish. According to my pool thermometer, the water temps in the coves was about 75-76 degrees and the river was about 71 degrees.
