I fished the Des Moines river today southeast of Des Moines and had very good luck to my suprise considering the cold snap that we have had the past few days and nights. The action was pretty much none stop in the deeper holes of 15 ft. or more...but all of these fish weren't bigger than a pound or two. This was fun for awhile then I got bored and started to wonder around looking for bigger fish. I started to hunt for log jams and snags to throw behind. Out of all the cover and structure I could find that was fishable, it was only in water that was no more than 2 to 4 ft. deep. So I immediately thought this would be a waste of time thinking that the fish have already headed for deeper water....boy was I wrong. About 4 log jams and an hour later I boated 9 more fish with 4 of them being right around 6 pounds with one that was 8 1/2. All in all it was a good day. I guess after catching them deep and catching them shallow it is tough for me to go along with the notion that they have headed for deeper water already. I guess for now I won't have to worry about trying to figure out there movement patterns as long as they are still biting where I throw my line.
