    Ever since the last storm came through and the water temp. dropped, fishing has been slow for everything. Cats are not biting, hybrids and stripers quit coming up and its even been hard to catch a spot. :sad2:

    I'm experiencing the same thing on oconee.....during the unstable tropical weather faye brought I did real good.....it lasted about a week and i fished the first night when it started getting breezy and popped that flathead that went for almost 20lbs then on the last night of faye which was one week later during the tornado watch and caught that 30lber.....since then I've fished twice and only caught one small bluecat? I guess maybe they were gorging themselves during that week and just aren't that hungry now. I don't know what's going on. what do ya'll think?

    Water temp. dropped almost 10 degrees. I think that has something to do with it. What's your opinion fellow members? :big_smile:

    that water temp. did drop fast. how do you think that affected the flatheads n blues? I'm still finding bait in my regular places. actually i was catching gizzard shad real good friday night, along with some small stripes. have you ever tried any coves or stump fields over there in westpoint paul?

    Do you spend a lot of times in coves paul? more-so in the mouth or do you go up in em? Me and my buddy put about 4 hours in the very back of a cove with lot's of standing timber last Thursday. That was the night when all we caught was a lil 10# bluecat. we did happen to get him in that cove though. There's a lot of decent looking coves on oconee, and tons of standing timber.

    Glad somebody's catchin' fish lately. Fished the Coosa last night and it was my worst trip there all year I think, wondering what's goin' on myself.

    yeah oconee has been........slow. i fished thur, and fri pretty much all nighters and only came up with a small bluecat. I've never ventured much south of the I-20 bridge. I plan doing some wind drifting down that way during the winter.

    Graphed some 20 to 24 foot holes up the hooch and they were loaded with fish, including some big ones. Had two spots and one bream hit and killed but they spit them right back out. I think the bite is just about ready to pick back up. I think they got stunned from the water temp dropping so fast.
