Friday the 13th Unlucky?
Not to unlucky for me. I fished Thursday afternoon for a few hours and found some fish right before dark. Went back Friday morning and and ended up with about 20 solid keepers. Don't know how many 9 1/2" we threw back. Most all keepers were good solid fish. Too bad the weather turned on Saturday and the winds came from the north. I had a friend sink his Polarcraft trying to cross the channel in a 20 mph North wind on Saturday. I seen on here where biggame said the water was muddy. It was muddy on the East side of the channel but I found the west side of the river to be perfectly clear. All fish were caught in 8' of water on bass assasin's fished over manmade stake beds. The cooler temps will probably send them back out to about to about 12'-15'. Lots of fish were full of eggs with some being pretty bloody. If we get two or three days of warmer weather the fish should turn back on. Look for that 55 degree water as the fish will start to spawn then. Don't let the shallow water fool you we caught some fish in 3' to 4'. The trees are starting to bud and that's usually a sign that spring is on its way. Sorry for the late report but my computer has been down for a few days. Good luck.
