Default Mazonia N, Sunday 3/11

Wheeled the boat into Clear Lake around 9:00 am. Temps were mild, light breeze out of the south / southwest. Water was extremely clear with visibility in most of the lake at 10 ft and many places even deeper. Bite was slow and none of the fish would have made 13”, most running 11” to 12” with a few smaller ones. Two of us caught around 25 bass over 7hrs, but 18 of them were caught in one very small area in about a one hr period. So the other 7 fish were spread out over six hrs of fishing. If we hadn’t found that one little spot, it would have been a real tough day. All the fish we caught were very shallow, 8 ft or less of water, back in shallow cuts. We did fish most of the whole lake and did not get a bite out on the main part of the lake. Although we fished almost every shallow cut, all the way to the very back ends, we saw very little fish activity. We only found two cuts where we actually saw any signs of life – small gils and bass cruising or up near the surface. As clear as the water was the fish were either still out in the deep water or buried in the weeds. They obviously were not up near shore cruising and looking for something to eat. Worked some swim baits and lipless cranks over some humps and down the middle of some of the shallower cuts a little more Sunday but everything came on jig and plastics again today.

Wonders of wonders today here at Shadow Lakes the surface water temp was an astounding 51deg. at 11"am and 55deg. at515 pm and all the logs were full of turtles and where I only caught 2 sm. bass onfloating flukes popped across the surface. But on sunday from the eastern shore of Braidwood lake with a water temp of 71 deg. I caught a nice 18.5 bass on a z-man popper-frog and a 16 in. bass on a swimbait and luckily those were the only 2 hits all afternoon.
