LUKE CLAYTON HERE. I, FELLOW OUTDOORS WRITER BOB HOOD AND 8 FRIENDS WERE AT TAWAKONI THIS MORNING FISHING FROM 3 BOATS, USING MAGIC BAITS NEW PUNCH BAIT "STICK IT" IN WATER 3 TO 3.5 FEET DEEP CLOSE TO SHORE IN AREAS WITH HEAVY WILLOWS. USED CORKS, SET TO KEEP BAIT JUST UP FROM BOTTOM. NO BIG FISH BUT STEADY ACTION ON CHANNELS IN THE 15-18 INCH RANGE.... GOOD EATNG! I LEFT HOOD AND MY BUDDIES FISHING, HAD TO GET BACK HOME FOR AN ARTICLE DEADLINE. George Rule was fishing the same kind of cover and had 90 in the boat at 10:30.., also using STICK IT.. Fish should remain shallow a week or two longer, then we'll follow them out to 15-20 feet. Baiting with soured grain is highly effective right now and will remain so. Good fishing to you.
