Out today 3 hrs with Earl Porter to do some scouting for trips the next 9 days. We found some good schools ...first stop, we put 3 in the boat with the Lanier Baits Shakey Ned with our Herring colored worm.

Kept looking and graphing areas....and like I said, boy we found some good schools. Shakey Ned again....another 3-4 fish. Picked up the spoon on another school we found that was on a big school of bait....boated a few more fish.

The next couple of places - we were boating drop shot fish....then pulled up on a big school of 12" spots and went to town on them with the spoon and drop shot. No real big girls today but a lot of fun. It's getting great folks...the deep schools are forming. Ended up with 14-15 in a short period of time - no big girls but a lot of fun. LJ

Today - we found some big schools in 40'-45' of water. The bait was deep and so were the fish.
