4-10 morning

Recommended Posts

Hit the lake at 9:30am tryin to beat the wind,  Wind won the race. Went out of High Point. Water temps 51-52 !! Bit puzzling since I've been seeing 56-57 around the dam ?? Not much of anything showing up on the graph. picked up a few crappie DEEP on some points and a bonus 21" walleye. Got the heck outa there at noon. Wind and waves at the ramp were crazy. Crappie all female. Eggs firm and not bloody at all. Also there was a nice looking black lab hanging out around the ramp. Seemed lost. Very friendly. Wanted in the boat with me but my yorkie wasnt having any part of that!! Had a wide camo collar on but no tags. Didnt see him when i got back. Hopefully belongs to someone local.

Surely you meant 61 to 62 degrees?  I was at Highpoint (back of cove) Tuesday afternoon to dusk and I was seeing 62 to 64.  If you were seeing 51 to 52 one of us needs to get our temperature sensor calibrated (lol).  Thanks for sharing your pic!

I had some 64 degree water halfway between Ruark and CC Monday.  Motored into Sons about 6 and had some 62 degree water.

We fished from Ruark Bluff to Greaser Friday and never found a water temp above 53. It was windy and cold and we never found any crappie. Going back Monday to see if we can do any better.

With the colder weather and wind I think it’s going to have fishing, mainly crappie, shutdown until late next week.  Just my .02 worth.

I went out of High Point Friday and fished my white bass bank about a mile down river.  Main lake was 54.5°  Saw a few fish on the graph but they weren't biting.  Went back around near the ramp and found 57.6 later on.  Caught 6 blacks on a wart and wacky worm.  Oh, make sure when you tie your boat to the dock to go park you double check your knots or you're probably gonna get wet!

OHHH. That sucks. I do have an Ulterra TM. It would possibly help in that situation IF it was still in range of the remote. I've had more bad luck and seen my share of others bad luck at that ramp ! Been a few years back. Storm blowin in and everyone trying to get out at same time. Guy ahead was power loading his bassboat and hit the roller too hard and jarred the truck out of park and rolled right back into the lake ! Completely submerged. Had to ride out the storm on water and waited around a few hours to watch the recovery. That was a terrible thing to watch happen. One guy was on the dock and ran to help but couldnt get there in time. Thats a memory that has yet to leave me. Think about it every time I launch and load the boat.
