This place is on the verge of turning loose. The fish are in that little post spawn funk and you can mark them but they just aren't firing up like they should. Everyday I head out I feel it could be the day that the big schools turn loose. They seem a little spooky and when you catch a few I feel they scatter and they just don't stay going for a long period. Hopefully this afternoon will be they day I am waiting for. There are more and more showing up daily and when they go it will be like flipping the light switch. I have been waiting for this time frame all year.

We are catching fish on worms,crankbaits,swimbaits,jigs. I have heard a few reports from some others that they are starting to catch them on spooks also. We are catching fish from 6 to 8 feet out to 15 feet of water.

If you are planning to come the next few weeks are on are the time. I have May 2nd,5th,9th,15th and 16th open in the next few weeks if anyone wants to set a day up. As always If I am booked and you want to get out in the evening I can do it.

Good luck
