Fished Sunday morning and did very well. The lake was almost full with visibility of 36 " and the vegetation was not an issue.Bass were active around the coon tail and grass line from first light till ( not sure ) because at 7:30 the feeder were off and I paddled over there to catch the large/huge bream that this lake has to offer. I stayed there until 9am and returned after bass but things slowed down. So I am not sure when the major feeding actually stopped. The bass were hitting weightless white yum dingers and lightly weighted 4" red shad yum dingers.A few other colors worked but these were the main two. The bream went after an olive woolly. Did not try spinner baits nor crank baits.

Caught 23 bass of which 10 were under 14" , 24 bream and 1 crappie. The largest bass was 3 lbs. All the bass were healthy.
