Water temp is at 62° and has dropped 14° in the last week and fish are starting to school up big time in the deeper water and also move to some very shallow structure. Bob and I both limited out (75 per boat) on our trips today. Wile there were no big fish yet, all fish ranged from 9" to 12". All caught on jigs in 10' to 13'.

We have had a couple of cancellations and still have a few days in October and November. Give us a call to book a trip 618-472-4763 Nick or 618-231-1417 for Bob.

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.
