After a late start I got on the water around 1P and headed over to the dishcharge. Tried my hand at the blues and picked up a couple on large roaches.





I was getting tons of 12'' bass and 1-2 lb channel cats, which quickly ran me out of roaches. I tossed a mini-mite and fathead on a slip bobber for awhile and got more small cats and plenty of these.



After running through the fatheeds I started throwing a shallow running shad crankbait about 10 feet off the rocks. That brought me a mixture of small bass and drum until finally I found what I was looking for.



This guy was not what I was looking for but still fun

The last hour or so was on fire. At one point I boated a hybrid on 4 consectutive casts. There were also some really nice yellow bass mixed in. I did not want to stop and take pictures, but I got one of the last fish of the day.



I could not think of a better way to start the season. I'll be back out tomorrow with Yami Master for some more fun.

Thanks for the nice replys. Back out today with limited success. The wind gave us a beating and the hybrids were elusive. We ended up with a mix bag of largemouth, yellows, and cats. Unless we were livebaiting them. we really had to work for them. We lost a few nice fish that were probably hybrids, but thats the way it goes.
