Anyone make it out today (1/26)

Put in about 0930 at the SK bridge and went upstream on the White to get out of the mud which is real bad coming out of the Kings, but clears quite a bit as you go upstream, but still not as clear as usual. Water around 44 degrees wherever we went. Made it as far as Owl creek. 2 of us caught 14 by 2 PM with 7 legal LM, largest was 19", most were just solid 16-17. Pattern for us was on 45 degree chunk rock banks up to 100 yds inside cove mouths or in little chunk rock pockets on the main lake. Caught 2 on stickbaits, 3 more on cranks, but best bait for me (had 9) was pitching a jig along laydown logs in 2-6' of water. The shallow wood seemed inportant we caught almost all the fish bouncing the stick, crank or jig right on the wood.

Around 2PM found a major cove with pretty clear water with quite a few birds milling around and pretty quickly found a large bunch of shad. Between 2 and 4:30 caught maybe a dozen Ky's with 3 legals, plus 2 crappie and a 22" walleye. This done with smoke jigs and tubes around 45-50 deep in 70' of water.

We threw the stickbait a bunch but only caught a couple. Did better on jigs and cranks fished around laydowns close to the bank. Water was pretty dingy around Big M and around 44 degrees wherever we went. I think there was quite a bit of muddy water that came down Rock Creek and Roaring River. I imagine if you got past Roaring River the water would be a lot clearer. I personally do not seem to do well with a stickbait in dingy water.

SKMO,

Was heading up to Big M. before I had water problems. How's the stick bait bite working up there? Water around Mill Creek was 44 degrees.
