Anyone been lately? We're heading up tomorrow. Was there earlier in the week but the weather whooped us pretty good. Not wanting anyone's spot just wondering what depths have you been finding fish?

I have a tourney there Sunday. Guys are catching 20-22 lb sacks and not winning up there. Last weekend, there were sacks of 31, 29, 24 lb weighed in to win. Guys I've talked to have been catching them on main lake points and ledges on Alabama Rigs and jerkbaits. The last few weekends have seen numerous bags come across the scales in the 22-26 lb range with some double digit fish weighed in.

I'll be up there Saturday morning but I'll be after sauger and catfish, bass will be my backup plan if I can't find the other two

I have heard some of the better sacks have come around Waterloo.

That would be correct, but I know of a few places holding 20 lb sacks that aren't receiving the pressure that the Waterloo area is getting. Hopefully they will cooperate again on Sunday.

We won our club tourney today with 21.86 lbs and had big fish at 6.38. All of our fish came on points and transition banks on jerkbaits and a-rigs.

Water temps were 49-51 today and we caught em from 12-20 ft deep. We caught em on the Alabama rigs by slow rolling it on the bottom. If you got too fast and lost contact with the bottom, you didn't get bit. Jerkbaits had to be fished very slow. I'd make a long cast on a point and crank it 5-6 times to get it down there and then pause it for 10 seconds. Twitch it twice, pause for 10 seconds with slack in the line. If the bait moved any, they wouldn't touch it. All of my bites came during the 10 second span where the bait was sitting motionless.
