Cold and Muddy

Recommended Posts

Happy Spring Fellow Fisherman,

I start the 2006 tournament season this week-end. I did some prefishing last week-end and caught a couple cranking in a bout 5 foot of water next to channel banks. The lake I am fishing is in the midwest, water temp was about 48 degrees. We have had alot of rain this week and the temp has come up. I am anticipating water temps between 50-52. I also expect the areas I fish (creek fed arms) to be muddy. Being this time of year would you advise I get out of the muddy areas and head to the main lake. What is your experience? Baits and colors to use in cold muddy water?

Cold and muddy NEVER works for me. If I can find clear or stained water that is the only option I would try. Otherwise, there are some days when I stay home and build my brownie points with the little lady!
