    Dale

    My dad and I have decided to go hit Dale this weekend, Dad hasn't been to Dale in probably 40+ years and I have never been there this time of year...any advice?

    That has been a consistent pattern for a while.........I'm headed down too, and will be doing that bright and early tomorrow......

    That is, after I float the fly a little........

    We struggled today. Caught 1 each, one LM and one SM. The LM came on a keitech and the sm off a channel point on a grub. Back of illwill was 52 degrees with debris floating, main lake was 56 and fairly clear. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

    Hit the lake this morning and looks like it is turning over. Fishing was tough. Water temp ranged from 52-54 degrees.

    Caught 4 yesterday, 1 SM and 3 LM. Sm was on a point on a swimbait fished back slow in about 30ft, the largemouth were shallow in the grass, 1 on a swimbait and the other 2 on a lipless crankbait. warmest water we found was 55-56. Definitely tough, only catching we saw was folks using live bait. Heading back down this weekend, hopefully the fishing improves.

    I was also down there, and had similar luck......we had 6 or 7 yesterday, 4 or 5 on friday, and 4 today.......It was a really tough weekend.

    I did catch a few yesterday on the float and fly though, which is nice
