The fish are a bit confused at the moment. some are still deep and we have others already spawning. most of my normal spring spawning holes look great, and are about the right water temp, but the water is super muddy. I bet we start HAMMERING them in the shallow water REAL soon. by real soon i mean when the water clears a little and they stop letting water out of the lake. that probably wont happen as long as they are letting water out of Ray Bob though. when it does you'll find me chunking slip bobbers with minnows in all the little spawning coves on the north end of the lake (south eventually).
This weekend id go to a creek, back of warmer coves (find 59 plus degree water), or fish the barge.
for sake of the spawn debate these fish were all caught in 2-5FOW this past weekend. look at how pretty the males are.
