    I have been fishing lake mattoon with limited sucsess. I was wondering if the spawn has started? The water temp is warm. The carp are starting to spawn, but I don't know if this means anything. If they are in spawn any advice on still getting some bites?

    I was there Weds night and the fish were shallow. Almost on the bank getting the shad and carp spawn. Caught a 14 a 12 and numerous 2-4 pounders.
