    Even after the rain and flooding here at Smith Mtn. Heading down lake to clean water is the ticket. Theres not a mud line really, just kinda fades from orange to brown, stained to clear/green. so working past that has been good. I belive most of the fish moved down just ahead of the mud. Kinda looking forward to once it clears up. Kinda wandering what the fish will do that stayed in the mud and didnt move down...

    Same tactics as my previous report post, just moved down lake several miles. Although I've been using more alewives as bait along with the gizzards than just strictly gizzards.

    With the rain and so much trash and logs in the water. we Havent been out at night. I busted a prop sunday, So be careful. thats 2 for this year.... but 6 last year.. May had out Mid of this week..

    I was pretty cool, pulling planers near docks 1-2 ft under water...
