water temp is 49 and on the high I have seen 61... surprise and yes 61. I
actually couldn't belive it myself. I have been mixing it up for a while now.
One day I may just crappie fish, the next it might be dragging umbrella riggs or
pulling free lines. Now the down rod bite with live herring has been slow over
all the warmer water has helped us of latly. I have been over a few deep primary points and
have found some large schools of spotted Bass with Large mouth mixed in. 15-27
ft seems to be the best of it. For Stripers, I'm catching some good fish on
Free lined Herring and Gizzard Shad in the backs creeks. Crappie are bitting
very well. Try fishing 15-25 foot over brush 6-15 ft down with small minnows.
