Slow fishing morning amongst the California smoke. Hit the shoals hard with a bonus 22” wally caught off a breakwater tip on jig and leech. Shoals produced a mere 3 largemouth, 2 crappie and 2 white bass. Yep white bass in Yankee, mostly small but they are growing! Water on the surface was like green paint, not pretty! Hope the wind blows or this lake is setup for a ugly fish kill!
A slow AM trip at nearby Yankee Hill Lake. Focus of the trip was to long line troll and catch some suspended Walleye. Fish were sparse in the 6-7’ zone as in past years using this technique. No hits trolling cranks (SR 5 & 7’s). Anchored up on 2 rock shoals for catching Bluegill to 9“ on the light tackle. Used both slip-bobbers, Satra Special rig, and vertical jerking 1/32 oz jigs tipped with leeches and Euro nightcrawlers. A nice morning for fish but overall a slow bite.
