    Went to perry this a.m. - didn't catch a whole lot but nice fish 2 at about 9lbs each - 1 7lb and two more about 5lbs each - caugh them early - water temp 48 and found them on secondary windy points in 2-4ft of water - starting at 8a.m. and had them all before the wind died down - once the wind died so did the bite - should be some good eatin!! lots of small shad everywhere!

    The Walnut was 50 the other day and a small lake around here was 53.
    I have a hard time believin there is still some mid 60s water.
    I wish it was though.:wink:

    Ya, if ya go by the corp report up by the damn they had it listed at 60 something - 48 was the temp - actually 48.2 - and to answear the question of where we were at we had to cut across a flat that was about 1/3 mile and 3 to 5 feet deep - I would say this shawlower water cooled more over night but the shad along with about 2000 seagulls and 1000 pelicans were stacked in the area - we watched the pelicans circle in around schools of shad - it was pretty cool - when we put in and I saw what the temps werer I didn't think we'd do very good but I'd say late fall is alot like early spring - the wind is a key to finding the fish and the quality of fish is much better than during the heat of summer - coldest temps I've ever caught channels out of but I won't be putting my fishing stuff up as soon in the fall anymore and I'll be pulling it out earlier for now on also.
