Put in at 7:15 at Mutton and headed a few miles up the big sac…water was 42-43 deg.  Picked up the jerkbait and never put it down…they were eating this morning!  Caught around 15 fish with 4 or 5 keepers…nothing big just typical keepers. Fish are definitely grouped up…caught 6 fish on one little 25 yard stretch in about 12 cast.  Got off the water by 9:30a to get back home…wish I could have stayed all day!  Lots of boats out as well!  Here are a few from today. read more…
