How shallow are the blues biting on yall's local lakes or rivers?
here in texas we are catching them as shallow as 3 foot....all these in these pics came from three foot or less coming out of the river into the bay
I would put in my 2 cents but you already know whats going on around here.
sorry...forgot to upload the pics...here they are..some of you have already seen them
For consistant numbers and size blues on rod and reel in north Texas: in most cases less than 5 foot, less than 10 foot almost without exception.
I ran into some small ones in 6 feet of water on cut bait.
shallow flats all the way to 2 ft. depth will and are producing in this part of the world.
I am not that far up the road from you, so our water temps are probably about the same, and we started catching fish shallow this past weekend with great consistency. These warm days and not so cold nights are slowly pulling the water temps up into the 60's and 70's during the day.
It is late March though, and you know how fickle weather can be. Temps will remain high until mid week, and then a front is coming through and the temps are going to be more seasonal bringing the highs back into the 60's and 70's.
The bad thing is that we have a tournament on Lake Wylie Friday night and the weather is looking significantly cooler than it has been. Hopefully that will not mean a case of lockjaw.
shallow flats here. about 2-3 foot. we caught 8 between 5, and 8 pounds yesterday on nightcrawlers. thier stomachs were gorged from feeding. pre-spawn here.
BlueHunter, that is a great crappie you got in your pic.
