On Monday a friend and I went Center Hill. I just couldn't figure it out and didn't catch much. I caught a total of 5 fish with just one keeper smallmouth. I think my friend caught just 2. I was excited about the day because I thought the conditions were perfect to catch fish shallow and on the bank. I could not make that work. 4 of the 5 fish I caught were in 25-30 feet of water. I found a huge school of bass but they just wouldn't eat. We caught a few out of there but the spot was loaded. The school was on the deep side of a main lake point where one side of the point was a gradual slope and the other dropped steeply off into the river channel. I fished the bank a lot with mostly a Topwater with only 2 blowups and caught one small bass flipping a piece of cover. I was very surprised with the cold nights that the water was still in the 60's.
