Donnie Vickie Rutherford My dad and uncle fished Cherokee Friday and Saturday. Had great day bot h days plenty small mouth on crank baits Saturday. Friday they was crappie fishing with popeye and minnows. Couldn’t catch crappie for small mouth. They take fish popeye and minnows 4-5 ft deep around rocky points and banks. Smallouth love it. We catch them every year like this. Just never tried it this early usually start i n April but,looks like I have been getting on the last of it over the years.

Thanks for the great report.
