    I caught a pretty little five lber last night a Jordan Lake. Got her home to clean her and she still had eggs! I was a bit suprised that she hadn't spawned yet. Water temps were 81 in 7' of water. I'd always heard/thought that channels spawned when water temps hit the mid 70's. Y' reckon that she's just a late bloomer?

    I'm not sure. I fish mostly small lakes and ponds, most of the fish i'm seeing have already spawned. I'm not sure about the water temps, but likely a few degrees warmer than jordan.
