I put in a little before 8:00 Saturday morning at Cedar Ridge.  I fished from there down the lake to a little past state park.  I had 31 total with 15 keepers.  Most of them on a spinner bait.

I found them on the steeper banks with the wind blowing in on them.  The fish were hold right on the bank so I would parallel the bank with my boat only 10 to 15 feet from the bank.  I had the trolling motor down and a covered a lot of water.   I didn’t get anything big, I had 4 in 3 lbs range the rest just 15-16 in keepers.  The bite seemed to be better before noon than after for me.  I was back at the ramp around by 3:00.  Water temps were from 51-53 in most areas.  I did a little testing with blade colors same spinner bait just changing the blade colors but it didn’t seem to make a difference in the blade colors.  The stock 3/8 war eagle in mouse color seemed to work as good as any.  I threw a 1/2 oz in the same blade combo but I took of the skirt and put on a 5-6″ swim bait trying to catch some bigger fish but I don’t think I got a bite on that one.  I am not sure what the cold weather will do to the fish but I am thinking it might slow down the blade bite soon.
