It has been reported there are some bluebacks in the lake now. Lake manager doesn't think there are very many. Not enough personnel to inspect everyone's live well coming in, but you can bet some "bucket biologist" put them in there. Jerks.
I've seen some significant bait schools at the surface that didn't appear to be threadfins. I guess that's what I was seeing. It may be for the best. The shad they were busting yesterday looked to be dime size or smaller in some cases.
Just anecdotal, but I'm concerned the lake may have peaked and begun to decline a bit as a bass fishery(at least). Maybe I'm only good at busting small fish, though.
