Even though the Lake has a lot of ice on it right now, all jumbled up, forecast says no to any Lake ice fishing as it warms back up with no long stretch of cold in the future forecast. So no open water fishing and no ice fishing for probably at least three weeks to a month. The show will be a nice alternative!
Wow if this weather holds up. Might be jigging shortly. Has anybody tried yet
Could someone help me with your go to fish batter?
Thanks in advance.
I have been once towards the end of April and caught a couple big ones but they were already spawned out in 45 degree water. I read they start around 40 degrees? I’d like to try earlier even if I release them pre-spawn. I also assume they are generally shallower then and over humps vs. out in the flats? I know the jig fisherman don’t like the trolling pressure so I would stay away and be respectful of that. I primarily fish out of Catawba.
Thanks very much to you all as I have really learned a lot from this site. I don’t want to steal spots or fish in the pack but the general speeds and colors sure are helpful 🙂
Cheers to a safe and fun 2023!
Looking to upgrade, main problem with cheaper ones I use is counter sticking and button getting stuck, very hard with gloves/cold hands in cold weather
