    Water Temp: 48 on main lake

    Water Clarity: Clear (4+ foot visibility)

    Report: Ute starting to finally warm up. Blacks and smallies are on main lake points and secondaries in coves. Mesquites on gravel points with suspending rogues and pointers seem to work best. Crankbaits and jigs on the rocky points will work for secondary pattern.

    Tips: Crankbaits and lizards didn't seem to work in a variety o colors and depths. Didn't ind a particular pattern other than white seemed to be the color the bass and walleye were looking or. All smallmouth and walleye's came on 3.5" White tube with 1/8 oz. sinker texas rigged with wide-gapped 2/0 hooks. Tried a variety o plastics, but white tubes turned out to be key or all species. Caught one Lg Mouth on a clown colored jerkbait. Red crankbaits and white spinners got the attention o 4 or 5 walleye but they wouldn't strike, only ollow it and then turn o. Smallies and Lg Mouths wanted a real slow, hop it 6" and pause presentation. Walleyes seemed to like a larger hop o the bottom and were not hitting as aggressively as the bass, but their strikes were deinitely more plentiul.
