I mostly throw lures but in the summer, I try bait when fishing gets tough and waters warm. After getting tired of the catfish, I went near Blount island early yesterday (7/26) and did well with lures. Had 3 reds and 2 -18 inch trout on top water and lots of other trout on a paddle tail. Some small jacks were schooling also. Trout were chasing shrimp on the flats. You could site cast to boils and pops on the surface. Early am from around 7 to 9 and everything seemed to stop when the sun kicked in.
