it was a great day fishing with sunshine and only a light breeze and temp in the 50's with water temp 43-44. as to the catching it was only fair. i hit the water about 10 am. caught some bait and fished five spots during the day. best bite was before noon with good action but nothing over 6lbs. bite slowed in the afternoon. caught fish on two of the four holes i hit with the best afternoon bite coming after 4pm at applegate cove. quit at 5pm. since i am new to wintertime catting i don't know much but it seems to me like the fish are scattered more than they have been. i have been wondering if the temp swings we are having is a factor. 60's are forecast for today and 30's tomorow. if anone reads this and has any thoughts on this i would appreciate their input. thanx.
