Fishing Notes

Today I decided to test the reports of bass returning to the gravel points.  I fished from Kings river, Shell Knob, and Campbell point.  I finally got into them at Campbell point.  I postioned boat in about 20ft of water and going into the wind.  I casted bait to the shallows and slowly cranked the bait across the bottom, with a 1/4 ounce jig head/swimbait.  The smallmouth were in 8 foot of water.  At sunset I tried top water, I had one good hit but struck out.  Overall the bite was slow, probably due to the recent front and high pressure.  It’s still better than working!
