Fishing Report, 10-16 Apr
Updated: Sat Apr 21, 2018Fishing Report, 10-16 Apr.Once again, the weather has interfered with our normal Spring fishing. These back-to-back fronts, at 2 day intervals, have put the fishing back a full two weeks, and have probably confused the fish as well.For example, back in early April we got the good signs for bass and crappie: the water in the sheltered areas of the backs of the creeks was reaching 64 degrees. A week later, those same areas were back to 59-60. This has repeated three times in the last 2 weeks, we get ready for better fishing and along comes another front.Here's what I've observed now.Bass tournament fishermen were surprised last week at the bass being back in deeper water. They haven't spawned yet, just another pull back for the frontal weather cold, some rain, and lots of wind. Spinners and stand up jigs worked well, and slowly worked Texas rigs did, too.Crappie fishermen in the middle and southern portions of the lake continue to catch a lot of males, in their black spawning colors, but not many females up in the shallows.The channel cats are beginning to move into the shoreline rocks, but that action has been sporadic, also.All of this should change if we get some consistent Spring weather, but I'm looking at another cold, rainy, windy front coming in this weekend, the 21st. We'll have to stay close in to shore in the creek areas, and wait awhile to get out to the open areas to look for whites, hybrids, and blues.Jim8 Apr.
