Fished there from 5:30 to 11 this morning. Bass fishing was slow today. I only picked up 5 bass in that time with the biggest about 2 pounds, all on the Yum Dinger. I actually walked all the way around the lake. The first two bass were caught early in the morning on the west side in the cove by the inlet.

The others were caught on the east side of the lake in the trees. I mean these bass were in the trees along the bank, maybe a foot off the shore.

Saw a couple nice 2 to 3 pound bass dead along the shore as well.

It also seems like maybe the bass could still be spawning? I saw two bass, one on top of the other, sitting on what looked like could have been a bed.

Depending on the water temp, I would bet you the bass are done spawning and you were seing males sitting on the beds guarding the eggs. The bass have already hatched over here.
What is funny is that the males will vicously defend nests and fry from all intruders, while bigger females sit deeper outside the spawning areas, usually near the first drop into deep water until they settle into their summertime feeding patterns. And other bass will gobble up fry. After a while the male leaves the nest, and will think nothing of gobbling up his old fry.
The bass that hatched last year at Jerry Creek are now about 5" long. They will be 15" within 3 years probably.

I try to fish Quincy at least twice per week. It's by far my favorite lake as it's very hard not to go out and catch something. I think I've only been skuked there once or twice in the past two and a half years.

I would enjoy fishing with you, but my company has decide I need to relocate. So sometime next month I'll be moving to Oklahoma.

If I make it out there again before I have to go, I'll send you a pm and maybe we can meet up sometime.
