Air Temperature: Low 35, High 50
Water Temperature: Low 51, High 55
Water Elevation: 357' (354 Normal Winter Pool)
Water Clarity: Fairly clean - 3' visibility
With falling water elevations and falling water temps, the bite has been deeper lately. The Largemouths and Smallmouths are schooled together on some main lake points and the black and white Crappie are schooled on some ledges. I like 'em deep! Check out the pictures on my "Pictures" web page.
Notes on Action: Fair to good action on both Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass. The Smallies are getting on their spawning sites and the Largemouths are fixing to head to their spawning areas.
What to Use: The two best baits I've thrown in the past week were a 1/4 oz brush buster jig with a small crawfish plastic and a 1/4 oz storm swimbait.
Where to Fish: Main lake points, secondary points, and deeper banks 4' to 18' deep.
Notes on Action: Slower than normal for this time of year, but good in short bursts.
What to Use: Tubes, curly tails, and minnows on 1/16 to 1/4 oz jigs.
Where to Fish: Ledges 15' to 25' deep.
