Coooold this morning.

Surface temp was 36 degrees when I got started in the creek. It didnt take long to figure out I needed to get out of there. I found a big school of fish on the main lake point near the mouth of the creek and tore em up on spinnerbaits. Water temp was 47-48 out there.

This afternoon the creeks were back up in the mid 40's and I caught a few ratltrap fish up real shallow. Caught about 35 for the day and 3 over 3lb as well as several 15" caliber fish. I'll take a day like that in these conditions but I sure am looking forward to some consistent 50+ degree water.

Probably Kentucky Lake if I'm not mistaken.

Yesterday myself and cdtac1 from here on the site went to Beech Lake in Lexington, TN. Water temps ranged from 45-48 degrees. Air temp was 28 when we put in and only got to about 40 for the day. We caught several fish. Not too bad for post-frontal, breezy conditions. Although we didn't catch a boat load, the ones we caught were decent fish and would've made for a decent limit, had we been in a tourney. All of our fish we're caught on Excalibur's 1/2 oz. version of the rattletrap in Rayburn Red. Also caught a couple on spinnerbaits and one on a jig. We keyed on Lillypad stems in 2-4 ft of water. Not just any patch of pad stems would work though. We found a couple of beaver dams and fished the little trenches coming out of the dams, underwater, that migrated through the pad stems. Although it's not but 10-12 inches of depth change, it was enough of a depth change for the fish to use as migration routes and to ambush baitfish. We didn't really burn the 'traps. Most of my hits came on a steady retrieve and I would rip it occasionally when it would make contact with the pad stems and that's when I got my strikes. Also slow-rolled a spinnerbait through the pad stems making it flutter on occasion and picked a couple that way. Had fun and can't wait to get back on the water. Here's a pic of the fish in the livewell. My hands and fingers were too frozen to reach back in there and get them out to take pics!

Hey mossy, it's about as close to ice fishing as we will get around here. Never had the hatches on the boat frozen shut before.

Man, that was crazy! Every freakin compartment door was frozen shut, and as with tradition on our first cold weather outing of the year, I lost my freaking hat in the water. I remembered a back-up this year though.

Seems like you'd remember to hold your hat if you could think to bring a spare. HA!Ha! Did you manage to hold on to your spare? LLLLOOOOLLLL!

I lost my freakin hat (being the good friend that I am) by trying to catch his fleece face mask that was about to blow away into the water. I caught his, and lost mine! I had my fleece headcover as a back up though!
