    Fished this morning , only caught 2 blues and 2 channels and several white perch for bait. The biggest blue was 22 lbs. I was hoping for a good current after all of the rain but not this morning. I was achored in 26 ft of water on the upper end of the lake early in the morning. Thats where I caught the fish. Tried drifting later in the morning back down the lake in 30 to 35 ft. of water with no luck. I did mark several fish though. No shad around the boatramp area. Its a good thing white perch are a dime a dozen.......lol. I heard at the boat ramp that they have been moving water in the afternoon lately. Can anyone confirm that? Water temp was in the mid 70's.

    jeff i heard the buzzer going on when i got to the dam at badin this morning but i got bait really fast this morning and didnt get to see how much water they was letting threw at badin. of coarse they could run badin and not tillery to some extent i guess.

    hey jeff might have the answer to your question on the water at tillery. i took my son down to falls this morning. there was some guys working on the dam going into tillery. maybe they got the wheels turned off while they are working in the daytime and like you said running water in the evenings at tillery? i know they was beating and banging on the flood gates with something. my son got 8-10 blues and i got 1 when he wasnt looking...lol. nothing big.

    Hey Michael, It would be nice to go back to January and start over catching those big fish again. :big_smile:
