Title: Warming up
Post by: DRY on April 01, 2019, 04:10:48 PM
The water...that is!!
I was in southern Maryland on Sat and the temp was near 80...cold front and rain came in Sunday and today
where I live that cold north wind was blowing again. Air 45 and water was warmer than air for the first time at 48F

Most of my 3 hrs. was used to catch 10 cookie cutter smallies all bewteen 1-2 pounds. Water is falling and they are starting to move out from the shore making my wading more difficult. The shoreline mud is terrible.

All fish were caught on the G&W krinkle cut worm ( a small 3" trick worm) on a 1/8 oz jig head.

Including these 2 fine specimens toward the end of my fishing day.

3 lbs.

4 lbs

If the wind cooperates I'd like to get the boat out.

Wish it would warm on up a few degrees and get that spinnerbait bite going!
