Got out for a while yesterday, and water temp is now down to 47.4 degrees F. Couldn't find fish on structures shallower than 23 fow. Caught 11 nice whites and three 20 inch hybrids at 2 spots - Greenhouse Ridge and Mid-lake Hump. Unlike in recent days fish would not take the Mepps w/o banging on the boat. But that worked and I caught the fish slowly raising and lowering the #4 Mepps just off the bottom after parking right over the fish, which were hugging the bottom as indicated on the sonar. Hope to try farther north today.

I did get out and went north yesterday to Spillway Hump and Enchanted Isle Ridge, but they weren't there in the numbers like Nov-Dec. I picked up 12 whites and a large yellow bass. Headed back south and found much better concentration at Mid-lake Hump and had a limit of whites and a couple of hybrids within 45 minutes. Fish were in 22 to 25 fow.

Water on the south end tends to be warmer, better for dead sticking.

I went out today from 1:30 to 3:40PM, looked at 3 structures and found fish at two of them. I spent most of the time on Greenhouse Ridge catching 14-15 inch white bass in 25-26 fow. Fish were hugging the bottom (see pic), and I used Mepps technique to catch them and didn't have to thump the boat. I caught 25 whites there and a 21 inch hybrid. Then went to check out Dam Ridge and fish were there too in 22 fow. I caught a couple there then headed in. Water temp was 47 degrees.

Went out 1/15 and 1/17 to do more winter structure fishing. Caught 20 whites and 2 hybrids on Monday and 15 whites and a hybrid on Wednesday. Water temp down to 44 degrees. Fishing depths from 22 fow to 27 fow on humps. Most caught with Mepps #4 white, but yesterday at Mid-lake Hump hot pink Mepps 4 was better - caught the 23 inch hybrid and another pulled off using it. Structures holding fish include Long Ridge, far west end of Long Ridge, Mid-lake Hump, East Hump and Greenhouse Ridge. Sometimes I catch them by casting away from boat and working Mepps back along the bottom. Other times they won't take that and I work the Mepps up from the bottom under the boat while thumping the boat floor.

Dennis do you find it takes a little more effort to get the painted blades to spin?

justchillin: No problem. Just get some spray paint and paint the blades on 2 or 3 of the silver. That's what I did.
