Josh Caster unloaded his fishing gear last weekend at Memphis Lake, near Ashland, around 9 a.m. to see what would bite. It was cloudy, a little chilly, but there wasn't much wind. In less than 90 minutes, the 31-year-old caught three bass. Within a few hours, his friend caught seven.

Caster — whose goal is to catch at least one fish a month — had a tough time in March, April and even into early May. He's not struggling anymore.
