What a nasty cold front! Got on the water with some friends and air temp was right about 30 degrees ... high blue bird skies .. and sun. Not exactly optimal fishing conditions but he traveled all the way from California so had to give it a try.
Fishing was very slow. We discovered fairly early that the fish weren't willing to give chase to anything ... and that the ones we found were all on primary or secondary points. Type of point varied too much to get a pattern completely dialed in as some of the points were rock ... some were points with multiple types of rock ... some had clay ... just all over the board. Caught one on a shakey head .. two stripers on an Alabama Rig .... one on a jerkbait ... and the rest on a jig. Took a while to figure out because the bites were so far and few between but the jig had to be barely moving and you couldn't "hop" it. In addition to the ones we caught lost a four pound smallmouth at the boat that I never got a real good hookset in .... and what I'm 85% sure was a spot around 4 pounds that came right up to the boat to just spit it out at me. =)
Best five for the day (mixture of smallmouth and spots) ... about 14-15 pounds
Water temp was 50 when we got on the lake ... 54 at end of day.
