Water Temperature is High 50s to Low 60s

The water is still not warm enough for the fish to lay their eggs. The crappie are full of eggs in 15-20 feet of water. The stripers are being caught in 12-18 feet of water on planer boards or down lines. Last year at this time the water temperature was in the mid 60 and the fish were in the shallow laying eggs. The fish should be coming in with in the next two weeks. Fishing with me this week was Scott Tredwell from Kernersville, N.C.(he caught a 8 pound striper), Lloyd Turley from Brookhaven, Ga.(he caught a 2 pound crappie), and Rodney Fowler from Statesboro, Ga.(he caught a 4 pound hybrid) They caught a total of 33 fish.
