when there is not much action on the steep channel banks on the main lake or where a feeder creek and man channel meet. The more sunlight in the day the more likely the fish are moving towards shallower water. As you probably have read some really big fish were caught right after a full moon and we are in March is the days have gotten longer.

Thanks for the help. I will finally be getting out on the water in the next couple of weeks so hopefully they start moving shallower.

Fishing is better after daylight savings time. The fish have an extra hour of sunlight.....at least that's what I read last year, here on the forum hmmm bolt

This, plus snake activity also. And of course, increasing water temperatures.

I thought the same thing when I read it last year. The guy really thought we randomly got an extra hour of daylight.
