Learning To Read Signs From Fish

Recommended Posts

Looking for advice on how to read input from the fish I catch. Last night was a post front condition, 20 degrees cooler than day before, 20+ mph winds with blue bird skies. Water temp was 74 degrees. Throwing crankbaits, every fish was hooked in the lower lip. I thought hooking them in the lower lip was showing me they weren't very active, but on half the fish we caught they were hitting the lure within 5 seconds of landing. Was I on the right path, or reading it the wrong way?

I dunno, sounds like they were pretty frisky to me.

What depth do you think the crank was in when you were getting bit? Was the lure still diving or were you at the bottom of i'ts depth rating? I ask because that tells you what part of the water column they were feeding or holding in.

The bites were almost always on the dive down, so from 0 to 3 feet down (was using a KVD 2.5 square bill).
