John Martin has some decent SMB. Some pushing 4lbs. But, the lake is super warm right now. 80 degrees as of Friday. You will need to target the rocky areas early morning or late day unless you have a boat and a good lake map to target the offshore rocky structures in deeper water. The dam area is adjacent to deeper water and you can find bigger fish there from shore. Try dropshots with heavier weight to allow your bait to get down deeper. Neds and crawdad imitations work well also. Be advised you will lose tackle. But, to find the larger fish you have to be willing to work and lose some.
