How long has the temperature been at 63 and what section of the lake is at this temperature? Has it been higher and dropped or did it just reach 63? I would suspect you will have spawners up shallow depending on how clear the water is, and you will have prespawners at the first dropoff or break, whatever depth that is. If your lake is rather clear the fish will spawn deeper and hang out deeper generally which may explain the 15 - 20 feet fish you are marking. (Also, are you sure these are bass?) Post-spawn fish can be shallow or at the first break depending upon how long it has been since they spawned and where their forage is located. Closer to the dam you will find cooler water and more prespawn fish. Further up the lake you will find warmer temperatures and some fish that have already finished spawning. We had a full moon about 11 or 12 days ago so if the temperature was around 63 then you probably had a bunch of fish come up to spawn.
