Thanksgiving Berryessa report

Not much to report again. We only put a 3.5 lb smallie and a twin chunk largie in the boat in about 4 hours of fishing. As I'm sure anyone who has been on the lake has seen, there are a ton of "fish" in 40-50 feet of water near any of the main lake coves and points, herding bait. I'm sure ...
