    5/1/19:
    Found a fun morning bite at the dam on spinnerbaits with my buddy, but they wouldn’t touch the fluke I had tied on the other rod or a small topwater. Shad were running per usual with an occasional bass that would surface through the debris that had been blown towards to dam. Once the shad went deep, worked the shoreline with a jig for only 1 bite, but a good one. Took a long lunch and kicked back out around 2 or 3 and managed to get quite a few on a ned rig (which I had never tried before) including a crappie. Ended the day early due to dehydration but managed 16 bass, 1 bluegill, and 1 crappie.

    Attempted to replicate the bite I had at the dam, but the debris was too thick and ran the edges for nada. Threw a couple different swimbaits for some decent success and was fun watching them go airborne for it. Fished the rest of the day with a ned rig, and caught most my fish throwing behind everyone that was fishing the visible structure. Ended the day with 27 bass (one of them being a zombie bass) and 2 crappie.

    A small plastic worm that is attached to a mushroom head. In his 5th picture down with the crappie, you can partially see it.
