Did well yesterday, so decided to give it another go today. Fished from 6 am to 9 am. Early bite was slow, but got better the higher the sun got. Pulled Bandits in 18 to 24 feet of water. Black and firetiger were best. I got my last fish of a limit when all 5 poles got hit at once. Was hectic not having anyone else in the boat. They were biting so good when I left, I think I could have easily caught another limit in the next hour.

2 Nice limits. Wish I had that kind of luck on Smith Lake. I am going again Saturday night. What series of bandits, 200? How fast was you trolling? How much line did you have out? I am about out of frozen crappiei fillets and in need of another limit.

A distinct layer of water where rising warm and sinking cold water meet but do not mix. It is a layer of water where the temperature changes at least one-half a degree per foot of depth. In many of our desert bass lakes, a thermocline often develops during the spring and breaks down in the fall. The colder layer of water is often lacking in oxygen, forcing most baitfish and sport-fish to the upper layer of water. Thermoclines can be so dense that they actually show up on sonar (fish finders and depth finders) as a thick, impenetrable line.
