Skunked at Busse

Fished Friday the 15th at a few bay areas, around the rocky mainlake shorelines, and even hit the main dam for a while. No fish at all in 3 1/2 hours. I guess that quick 30 degree drop in temperature Friday morning killed the fishing. Used jigs of all sizes and colors, minnows, plain hooks and twistertails without a bite. Water levels around the lake are low and the water is very muddy and brown.

Went back for more punishment today the 17th. Water levels are still low and very muddy, less wind, the sky was overcast and you'd think the fish would be biting. No bites today either, using the same methods listed above and even tried throwing a few firetiger cranks. I don't know what's going on, the water is still too cold for the actual spawn.

One day I'll actually get the hang of this. Ed can you delete the double post? Thanks
