    Water Temp: 46-52

    Water Clarity: Stained (2-4 foot visibility)

    Report: A friend and I gave Brownlee a try for about 30 fish from 1.5 to 3.5 pounds. It started slow with hand poured plastics for a fish every 20 minutes. When the sun warmed the water around 11am, we started getting fish on deep crankbaits. By 1 pm, the fish were on the bank and hitting spinnerbaits and that is when we caught the best fish.

    Tips: Find warmer water and power fish.

    Water Clarity: Muddy (0-2 foot visibility)

    Report: It has been almost 2 years since a report has been submitted, so here goes.
    I caught 30+ smallmouth between 12" and 6 pounds. I heard fishing was tough from the tourn. guys but I had a limit in 1 hour, 20 fish in two hours and about 30 by the end of the day. Fish were in 10-15 feet of water, hitting rip baits. My live well was full of crawdad parts at the end of the day. Best 5 fish were a #6.1, a #4.4, a #3.8 and two @ #2.5. Can't wait to get the pictures back. E/S

    Tips: Don't worry about the water temp. throw reaction baits.
