Fished Post Oak on Thursday under clear skies and nearly windless day with little breezes from all points of the compass. The lake is full to the spillway with just a trickle of water going over it.  Lots of grass & weeds with quite a bit to the surface in shallower parts of the lake.  Visibolity is 2 ft or so.

Picked up bites in widely scattered areas on the deeper east end of the lake, with many in the grass or in the vicinity of the edges.  Only culled 1/3 of bass, with several 3 to 5+ lb, no dinks and a crappie. They gobbled many different types and colors of soft plastics, including some vicious strikes on frogs just before sundown.  The largest bass of the day took a yellow beetle spin - a crappie bait and the smallest lure I threw.

The place is in really good shape, wildflowers everywhere.  The new seat has been installed on the stern of the boat.
