    Report: Started at irst light. Went straight to power lines. Fish busting surace all over. Partner immediately had one swirl on buzz bait but did not hook up. I threw a blade or a short period with several short strikes. Switched to Pop-R's and started reelin' 'em in. Had a blast catching ish up to 2 lbs. Moved to eagle's nest to try some ish that partner knew o. It was covered with boats rom Visalia Club tourney. So we moved to rip rap at bridge as next option. Cranked and drop shotted. No takers. Went back to eagles nest ater it cleared. No hits. By this time sun was up high. Went to docks and started "strokin" em. Nice ish 2 lbs plus. Skipping plastics as ar back into docks and under pontoons as possible. Partner had a nice 5 to 6 pounder break him o. Picked up a couple more drop shotting the dam around noon. Pulled o at 1:30.
    City: Hanord

    Tips: Don't miss the top water bite in the early morning on the grassy North side. Pop'rs with a slower cadence. Ater Sun gets high, move to docks skipping plastics in the shade and hold on. Fish hitting immediately on drop. I no takers, pick up and skip again. Don't waste time working bait.
