Where are the fish?

Recommended Posts

Just curious where the fish are? The water temp is around 50' in most locations, every now and then you can hit a spot of 54' and in the shallow water it's about 58'. The main river channel is around 52' so my question is where are the fish?

I went this past weekend and didn't get a bite all day and was fishing about 10-15ft on the deep river banks. We fished the creeks, the creek mouths and even some deep rock walls, nothing no bites.

What did we do wrong? Wrong lure? Wrong color? :-/

I wanted to add, I fished a private pond yesterday and caught three 4lb bass about 10 ft. on a dropoff, is this where they are hiding in the rivers right now?

Did you fish the shallow 58 degree water? I read a few fishing reports for Guntersville and some were catching bass in less than 5' before the cold weather came back early this week.

Yeah, I fished the deep banks and the shallow lakes/creeks off the river channel without success. I probably should have but did not fish the creek mouths with the c-rig. I had a gut feeling to but never did because all my success has come from the deep river banks and up in the creeks/lakes off the main river channel.

In answer to your query, it seems that, by looking at the posts on this forum, the bass are in Lake Avid.

This is part of a guide's fishing report for Guntersville on 2/11--------

"All fish were caught on a Trap(Red), but a lot shallower than I've been fishing (2-5ft).Tried a few different things ,but mostly the Trap ,because it's so good for covering a lot of water."

The fish in FL are in about 6" of water.  The water temp is 3-4* higher in the very shallow water.

I went back this morning and had no luck again however we had some bad weather last week and fresh rain and this has got the water temp way down. The creeks are 47' and the river channel is 52'. I think I'm going to have to wait until it warms up a few more degrees. I did stay all day trying anything I could think of. All my Sonars showed all the fish were 3'-8' however nothing was biting not even crappie.
