     Zebra Mussels      Super Infectious!      up to 3/4      Since the infestation was discovered in Oct. of 2007 these mussels have spread throughout the lake. It's up to all of us to make sure these are not spread to other area lakes, Clean-Drain-Dry everything that is taken out of Perry. Mussels will be start spawning as the water temperature gets to around 54 degrees. I've taken five samples this year, no big jump in numbers!

Caught quit a few bass in the back of coves on a array of baits. Mostly on a spinnerbait in brush piles, but when they didn't want that I could catch them on a brush hog or Srike King Rage Bug. Caught a few on a Lucky Craft square bill, but they really wanted the spinnerbait over everything else. The wind was pretty brutal,  but if you could find some coves protected from the wind, you could catch them. And if the largemouth are not bitting, you can always jerk on some white bass to tide you over. The whitebass are going nuts! Rocky jetties and any rock pretty much. I love this time of year cause the bass are putting on the feed bag! The water temp was 53, so it won't be long before it hits that 40 degree mark.
