I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
We caught plenty of bass this weekend. However most were small 12-13". Deep fish were less than eager to bite. Still seen a couple guarding nests yet.
Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic.
Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
