WATER TEMPS ON THE RISE AND FISH BITING.

By NIMROD - Posted on 16 March 2010

It was 52 to 53 yesterday on Nimrod but 55 to 57 when I left about 3.00 pm.
I caught a good mess over structure in the river on jigs. I used 2 poles to try some samples of hand tied jigs verses my favorite 1/8 oz 2'' umbrella tubes. Tim at TNT sent me some samples of his jigs to try. His Hand tied jigs caught about the sames as my tubes this time. The water was muddy , it may change on clear water. He sure makes some pretty jigs.
The water temps are rising and if the weather holds the bite should really pick up. I saw lots and lots of suspended fish in the river close to the surface in the river on my depthfinder. There was a local catching them trolling jigs, but only keeping about 10%. Said he also caught a good mess. :D

No I gave up tournament fishing years ago with Bass fishing. But that is my style of fishing, never did understand allowing anything else in a tourament. One pole and a jig is my favorite method, spider rigging takes all the fun out of it for me. Besides here the limit is 20 and with a bunch of poles you can limit out to quickly. Not to mention , I love to feel them thump my jig.
