That is all I could hold. Had to get them to the pond quickly. Image title

Lake level is 552.40 and has been the same for three days with just a little generation in the evening. The main lake is still stained a bit and the creeks are more. Surface temperature is 83 drgrees. It is to get hot again this weekend and early next week. It was cloudy and rainy yesterday so I did not go diving but went pole fishing instead. I went out for one hour to a brush pile and caught 6-nice crappie, a 20-inch walleye and two Kentucky bass about 12-13 inches all in the same place. Most of the fish were near the bottom in 23-feet of water. I was usuing a 1/8th ounce Bink's jigging spoon. I cut one of the barbs off the treble hook to cut down on snags. I lost one big crappie because the net was tangled up in another pole but got all the rest. They all went into Tom Kelly's trophy pond anyway. The crappie were 12-13 inches.
