    put in at daylight and got bait at garcreek (what makes that area so special for the baitfish I wonder?) and decided to fish around the bait (never have tryed that before) and caught 9 blues all 4 pound and under. was a butifull day until noon when the wind picked up real bad. just started learning to catch baitlast summer so this is the first winter i have been fishing. does the bait allways congragate togher like that in the winter? never seen that in the summer. maybe a biggin next time.

    when the water temp gets dow to about 55 and below the bait will congrgate really well, and as you saw a lot of the smaller catfish will follow that bait, every now and again a good one will be there, if you fish the ledges and structure near that bait you should do really well
