Typical early spring outing

Recommended Posts

Headed out after breakfast this AM with high expectations after a warm couple of days. Ended up being a typical spring outing. Water temp. (surface) was 57 which is only one degree more than it was Thursday, so I started out the same way targeting the points leading out to the deepest water in the lake. Nothing going on with bottom contact presentations, so I did a 180 and tried my favorite jerk bait with the same results.  Two hours later and nothing, so I switched tactics completely and went with a RES lipless just off the first break from a spawning flat. Second cast, got a buck and thought I might be on to something. NOT.  Not one to jump on the finesse wagon unless really desperate, I tied on a jig/craw and started covering the few lay downs on the flat. Bingo....Got a nice, chunky 17in. female that just sucked it in and sat there until I set the hook and it was game on.  Sadly, she was the only decent fish of the morning. This seems to be a reoccurring scenario here. The fish have very short feeding windows and then they hunker down. I'm going to need to travel a ways to one of the power plant lakes to find some active fish next time out.
