      The last time I was there, about 2 weeks ago, the Spots were really liking topwaters on shallow points really early in the morning. A whopper plopper is the best, ...more or anything else that makes some noise. Once it starts getting later, skakey heads off of main lake points and islands should get you a few bites! Good luck!!
