Temps in the 50's and major cold front coming through Sunday ... couldn't help myself but to get out. Amazed to find the water temps still at 53!!
Had what I thought was the perfect storm with pre cold front conditions ... cloudy .... a little wind ....figured I would hammer them. Never figured them out for some reason. Caught four total ... and only one smallmouth. I threw the A-rig a lot and never got a bite on it. Caught them on a hair jig ... conventional jig ... and jerkbait. Fished everything from main lake flats/points ... to bluff walls ... to secondary points in creeks ... to backs of creeks. Marked very few fish ... and very few bait fish pods. Not sure what was going on.
Still better than sitting at home on the couch and I did at least get my first fish of 2016! =)
