Got started about mid day Friday rigging double minnow rigs. WT was 87-88. Thermocline looked to be 15-16 feet in 20 plus feet water.... Minnows would get stiff if put 15 feet down... I can see on my graph but, I’ll drop a minnow down for a couple minutes to be sure that’s what I’m seeing.... Last Sunday the area I was at if I would put them below 10 feet they would get stiff.... Does a heavy algae bloom also make it set up that thick? Also does it make it difficult fishing
Wasn’t catching anything in the depth I been in the past several trips 18-25 fow 12-14 down.
So went to shallower water 12-14 fow and there they were just hanging out with my bait down 10-12 feet.
Grind threw a zillion shorts and was able to roll out with 10.
Pics below. That one belly shot is like a 7 inch crappie. Looked like it swallowed a golf ball. Looked like a midget Dardanelle fish🤣🤣
