“Day one we ran to the dam and only catching a few we decided to make a run down river and fish the grass to finish out our limit. On day two we started the day fishing where we left off in the grass throwing jigs and spinnerbaits and catching a solid limit. Later in the day we made a run back to the dam fishing rock structure and was able to cull a few times to improve our limit. Our big bass was caught during the first 2 hours of the morning,” stated Galbraith.
