Water Conditions: Partly stained, good visibility. 63 to 65 degrees. No weed edge, but weeds emerging, especially north in Byram and Henderson.
Moved one 42 to 43 on the Reef Digger half-hour before moonrise in the "spring cove." Fish may have tapped the bait. Jim and John didn't see any. Had a few pickerel, a bass and the nice walleye. Two pickerel and the walleye came from the windblown end of Great Cove. Wind had been pushing in there all day. Not easy finding a weed edge.
