The bite is definitely picking up as a big number of fish have made the move to ultra shallow water since noon yesterday.

Water temp on the main lake was 59 and we found water as warm as 67 in the back of a creek and the fish were bunched up back there.

We caught a bunch of fish today on a white 3/8 oz chatterbait with a LFT Live Magic Shad in Albino Shad color. We also caught a bunch of fish on a Junebug colored Texas rigged LFT Flipper.

Most of our fish came from less than 3 ft of water.

Well, due to the 38 degree night that we had here last night, the water temp fell about 7 or 8 degrees and we lost a lot of the momentum that we had built yesterday afternoon.  To say that it was a struggle this morning would be an understatement.  Luckily, we got dialed in a little bit this afternoon and we were able to salvage the day.

My best bite today was in 6 ft of water.  It didn’t matter whether I was in the back half of a creek or on the main lake, darn near every fish we caught today was in 6 ft of water.

A Jackall Bling 55 was easily the bait of choice today.  We threw a few other squarebills during the day, but nothing produced like the Bling 55.

Water temp this morning was 54, but warmed up late this afternoon t0 59.  With the warm night tonight, I’m hoping to see more fish make a move.  We’ll find out tomorrow and I’ll be sure to post another update tomorrow to let you know!

Fished a half day this afternoon. The lake is sitting at 397.5 (5.5 ft below full pool). Water temp at the 515 East public ramp was 56.0. Warmest water I found this afternoon was 59.2, and that’s where we caught the majority of our fish. Finished the afternoon with 14 in the boat, with 2 or 3 more quick releases. Not a bad afternoon numbers wise, but I couldn’t find the big bite today. They’re somewhere close by, and I’ll get them dialed in before long.

Shallow crankbaits accounted for most of our fish today, and we caught them in 2-6 ft of water. Chartreuse was tough to beat, but we did catch a few on Sexy Shad.

It’s cool and windy out, but you can hammer out a few bites if you keep your head down and fish hard.

Water temps are ranging from 52-55 degrees, and a red lipless crankbait in 2-4 ft of water on secondary points have been our best bait today.

The bite seems to be improving with our current warming trend. Water temp on the main lake when we started this morning was 54 degrees and by mid-afternoon, we found water as warm as 62 degrees.

Secondary points produced best for us today as we boated 13 and lost several. Many fish were slapping at the bait and not eating it.

Chatterbaits trailed with an LFT Live Magic Shad accounted for our better fish today, but we caught a few on squarebill and lipless crankbaits in crawfish patterns.
