Fished Liberty 630-4pm yest. Just 4 fish. Hit a 3.12sm early and then struggled for the rest of the day. Water temp was on average 53. We found 64.5 in one spot and thats where we caught 3. We actually counted 22 bass in this area about the size of my boat. We didn't fish much cuz we were running the lake doing some side-imaging. We went from the ramp (52 and clear) to Hillbilly Cove (54 and muddy) to Cooks Run (55 and stained) to Red Barn (58 and muddy) to Smallmouth Alley (54 and clear) to Locust (58 and clear) and back to the ramp.
These fish are close, in the next few days they should make a real rush to the banks. Why the bite is so tough I do not know, apparently, the loch isn't fishing well either, considering. It might just take a few days for this warm weather to actually trigger the fish.
