      Air temps were high 50s with low wind, 5-6mph. Water temps were a steady 50 degrees across the whole lake. Extremely clear right now, about 12-15ft visibility. Started off on my typical deep weed line spots with no luck on jerkbaits. Trolled around the basin for a bit too see if anything was out there and saw large schools of smaller fish in roughly 20-22fow on the graph. Tried drop shotting with a tiny Aberdeen hook and half of a 1in gulp to see if they were gills or perch. Nothing but nibbles when I tried to catch them. Pulled out of the basin and noticed lots of small bait fish cruising the shoreline, almost looked like fingerling bass or shiners or something, couldn't get close enough to see since they'd spook before I could get close. Majority of the weeds have died off so it's pretty barren around that depth but the bass seemed to be cruising around in the shallow water. Maybe chasing the bait fish, maybe warming up in the sun. Burned a lipless crank relatively fast at that depth around the lake and they seemed to be following that pattern on the entire lake. Hard or soft bottom, cover or not, it didn't seem to matter because as long as I fished that depth, they'd bite.

        Submerged Vegetation

      Decided to practice my crank game today. Tried keeping my crank just barely above the weeds just so I could tick the tops of them. Considering it's my weakest technique I think I did great today. Nothing of size, but the numbers were definitely there. Great July 4th evening.

      First night trip of the year, vegetation wasnt too thick yet. Threw chatter and jigs on the tops of ledges and the flats and it produced well. Later on we circled around and threw jigs along the bottom portion of the dropoffs and they were still munching. Night bite only gets better from here on out!
