The day was cool and mostly cloudy with some wind. Temperatures were in the mid 40’s all day. Water temperature was in the mid 50’s. Anglers reported catching fish on crank baits, jerk baits, topwater, spinnerbaits and jigs. The bite was slow, but 10 of the 23 anglers brought in a five fish limit. Third through 8th places were all within ounces of each other, ranging from 10.31 pounds to 10.83 pounds. The Big Bass was also a tight race with seven 3 pounders weighed in, all very close (3.15 pounds to 3.62 pounds)
