Catch 22

COLD water,good catching

Recommended Posts

A week ago the wt was 49,then the bottom dropped out.2 days ago at midnite it was 11 degrees and being the second cold nite,froze my local waters .

Toady temps moderated and a scouting trip revealed 1/2 of my favorite place was still frozen. WTHeck.I put the boat in and proceeded to catch 10 pickerel,2 perch @ 13.5"+3 smaller ones,1 crappie and the bonus was a 2.5 lb lmb.The hot lure was  a1/16 oz light brown/w pinch of white hair jig. I made only 1 of them experiment with and of course a pickerel bit it off. Most of the piks took a 3.5" jerk.

Not bad for 2 hrs on the water. Negative note I lost a rod in 6' depth. Will be searching for it in the morn.

Most of the water I fish is in the upper 30's right now. Don't think much of anything bites at that cold.
