On this day, I targeted submerged timber on transition areas in front of shallow flats off the main lake. Medium retrieve speeds with the occasional long pause. I looked for softer bottom areas with sand/mud. 6-10ft was where I found them stacked but I would catch the occasional fish moving up onto the flat. Wind was moderate and variable (5-10 mph NW) with blue bird skies. Outside temp was in the upper 50’s.
