Fished with Luke from 5am to 10am. Had 11 in all. 1 Keeper. Did best on worms, but did catch them on blades, fluke. Missed a good one on swimbait. Small shad everywhere. Water temp about 70. Visibility very bad, water was brown and weedy. Found fish between 18 and 21 fow.

Fished from 6-10 before work. 17. 1 keeper, another super fat 17" and lost a big one. Did really well in around 15 FOW on the west side humps near the marina. They were really liking worms. Got the big ones on blades. When I cleaned the keeper I found a crayfish in its stomach.

Finally had some good results at Cherry Creek. Managed 32 on the south end. Jigging Rap and blades were very productive. Lost a really nice walleye and a few others on blades, ordered some new hooks to replace the factory ones. Next afternoon at CK I only caught 9. Both days I managed one keeper. Saw huge shad spawning by the ramp in the evening. everyone else was fishing around the marina, did not seem to be catching much. Best luck was between 10-20 feet. Temp was about 68.
Hit Chatfield Sunday. Slow start. Boat traffic everywhere. Went to the no wake zone and Diane and myself caught a handful. Decided to deal with the waves and boat traffic and fished the NE corner. Caught quite a few fish. Storm came in with a lot of wind. Bite really picked up. Caught another 10 or so around the East end of the roadbed. We got 43 all together. Diane caught 22 fish!
Up until 2020 models Lunds came with a plastic fuel tank vent on the port side bow. The vent stuck out about 1/2 inch and was easy to damage...
