I went back to Stumpy/Cornelious Creeks yesterday, same place that I have been catching cats for a week, and found the water temp. to be 42.9 degrees rather than the 40 some degrees that I have been catching cats in. I was a tad corncern with the change in water temps. from the get go and the end results said that I should have been. Gulls are still sticking picking up sluggish or almost dead threadfins, but the cats were not biting. To make matters worst, I had invited one of my old striper buds to go with me and I was going to show him a thing or two. The only thing I showed him was how to setup the rigs and the proper speed to power drift. He thanked me for taking him out and gave me an underwater temp. guage which shows you what water temp. was and at what depth.
