Mid lake. Water stained 54-56 degrees. Air temp...freaking cold. Caught a limit plus a few culls on Black/Blue craws in 2-8 ft of water. Had to have a deep water access close on the outside bend on a creek channel. Bite was really subtle. If line would get lite a fish was on. Every single fish would start swimming very slowly toward deep water(usually toward the boat) once they grabbed it. There was no actual classic thump. First 2 hook sets of the morning resulted in both claws torn off. We had to adjust to the most unnerving technique to get a hook set. We had to let the fish take it and let them swim. Sometimes for 10-15 seconds. We relied on Garlic spray about every 10 casts to keep them interested in the lure long enough(a few spit out until we started doing this) As they were swimming we had to very slightly twitch the craw to make them suck it in. Felt like an eternity. Once we felt the fish suck it in you had to set the hook immediately. By then the fish had swam dang near under the boat so the hooks sets were zero stretch cross eyed hook sets. 20# floro. Had to upgrade to 4/0 to make sure hook long enough not to short set the hook up. Ended up with a 19# stringer. Also, all fish were caught when the rain was falling. Not a single bite if it wasn't. Hope this helps.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways with a fishing rod in one hand, 10# LMB in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and yelling "Wow! What a Ride!
