Have they stopped? About a month ago i had no problem catching 7 plus lbs. Now i get little bites. Do they have a period where they stop biting?

They are still biting , however, they do stop biting when you leave the lake. grin

With all the new water they are more than likely headed to the mouth of the creeks to eat the new incoming baits. But then again they have a lot more water to explore so you will have to do the same.

Good luck

Go shallow at the upper ends of the lakes. Fish the flats right off the creek or river channel.

Great info guys! I've still been fishing in 30 plus deep water. I'll go shallow and find a creek or two. This give me a better game plan as i have a couple creeks that open to lakes to fish and a couple good shallow spots in mind. Thanks!

Always start exploring shallow water end of Feb into March. Lots of good fish caught shallow earlier in the year than most people think when we're talking blues. I see a lot of people wait until the spawn to hit shallow water, they've already missed months of action. And when we say shallow we're talking 1-2 feet sometimes.

Caught a 22lb blue and a 35lb blue about 4 weeks ago during that first big rainstorm we had in 18 inches of water in Marshall creek over in Roanoke during the sand bass run.

I feel like on years with good spring rains the fish move shallow earlier than on dry springs. Seems like sloughs and channels are at the top of my list this time of the year if its been raining good. Once it gets a little later in the year I might start trying drop offs and ledges but for now its the shallows in my opinion.

Flatheads and channels will be moving out to the shallows in a couple of weeks here north of DFW
if the haven't already done so. Best fishing will be right against the bank on a muddy running creek.

Wow dude i would never thought to find 20 plus lbs in that shallow of water. I'll have to rug up a couple more rods so i can find the best place. Sounds like it's going to be a blast!

Nothing like being in less than two feet of water, see a pole go down and then a tail bigger than a five gallon bucket come out of the water!!!!
