Someone once told me fishing is very tough after a strong cold front. Perhaps he should have told the fish that.  This has to have been one of my better days on the lake in some time.  Wind was howling out of the Northwest guessing 15 to 20, Water temp was 73 to 75. The lake appears to be turned over as I could not find a thermocline and the algae bloom appears over as well.

Fishing depth was 8 to 15 FOW. Species accounted for:

1. Walleye

2. Smallmouth

3. Kentucky

4. Black

5. Striper

6. Crappie

7. Catfish

8. Paddlefish

9. Gar

10. Perch

11. Hybrid

12 White

Trolling flicker shad # 5 and #6 in Pearl White 140ft back with 10lb fluorocarbon from 2.2 to 2.9 mph. Depth was 20fow with brush in it fish were suspending above the brush until this afternoon when they moved shallow on cover in 16 to 8fow.

It did not matter if you were on a Point , Secondary Point, Flat or channel, if you could find cover in 20fow there was fish on it Crappie were averaging 12” and some to 16”.  I was actually playing catch and release with crappie for most the day, Releasing crappie because you were limited is never a bad thing :)

Anyway here are some pics from the day and some of the participants.
