7/17 Good action on Hammond tonight from 7 to 8:30PM Water temp was 79-81. Trolled Three D crawler harnesses and picked up some panfish, this nice bass, and lost another good fish. Trolling .8-1mph over 7-14 fow. This spicy shad color was the hot one tonight.  THe double blades put off a unique action.  We suspended this using no weight, keeping the rod angle low to keep the lure from running to high.

The storm front seemed to have the fish fired up.  There was fish busting shad all over the lake, despite heavy boat traffic.  Unfortunately, I had planned to troll and left my topwaters at home.   Sorry for the poor picture below, but here you can see some larger fish chasing down a shad school.  Always a good sign!
