Fished by myself Sunday morning. Temps started at 43 but increased to 76 at noon. Wind was calm to start and at 9:30 started to increase to 10 about noon. Water level was good and visibility was 30”. 

Caught 19 and culled 4. The largest was 3 ½ lbs. Started at 7:30 and did not have a strike until 8:15. The wind started giving me problems around 9:30 and at about 10:30 I did nothing until I pulled out at noon.I caught everything from 8:15 to 10:30.( 2 & ¼ hrs)

I had fished Acker with another member a month ago with most of our fish on a wacky & tx rigs. Today a pig & jig and a ned rig fished five to ten feet out from the tree line worked the best. Did not get a single strike in the places I caught fish last trip. Last trip the dragon flies were along the tree line and the bass were eating them so the wacky worked well in that situation
