A flock of teal buzzed by as we motored across Lake Norman this morning. With the sunrise behind them, a positive ID wasn't possible, but undoubtedly they were bluewings, a sure sign of an autumn cold front.
We've seen a few fish caught already. Shane Lehew had one within 15 minutes of launch. Andy Montgomery already has four that total about 8 pounds. We followed leader David Williams for a bit, as he worked docks with a white buzzbait. Williams didn't have a keeper yet, but then it was 10 a.m. before he had one yesterday.
Chad Morgenthaler has one "pretty good spot" in the livewell. We've watched him work a white buzzbait too. In fact, we've seen a lot of white buzzbaits this week.
