    We fished the Guard Tournament 6/27, water temp was 83-85, winds south west at 10-20, big storm moved through mid morning and was overcast most of the day. There was a pretty good topwater bite early before the storms began. We caught over 100 fish throughout the day. Many were solid fish in the 14"-14 1/2" range. Not keepers but fun to catch none the less. We were able to bring 4 to the scales and broke off a couple of good ones. 90% of our fish were caught on jigs after the storm in 5-10 ft of water off the rock banks. Fishing is picking up for sure... good luck
