Fished between the 5-8MM of the Glaize, Fished the jig very slowly and the slightly weighted jerbaits with a count down of at least 5 before twitches. Fished creeks with large rocks, all the fish were caught near the top of the creek or towards the back at the first drop off.

Fishing Notes

After a busy weekend with the Bassing Bob Round table and the tournament on Saturday, Lisa and I fished a few hours on Sunday. We fished from 12-4 with several bites in the Glaize. After listening to the all the experts at the round table there was some great information to digest and put to the test. We fished areas of the Glaize that I had luck in past winters. Some of those areas had fish but not too many keepers. Although I reported 1 keeper, we had a couple Kentuckys that may have measured 12”. In addition, presumably due to my inability to properly tie leader line correctly, I lost what was a 3-4 pounder as the line broke at my leader. Lisa, just recently learning to fish with a baitcaster, had a good one come off on a jig. Although she has fished quite a bit over the years, this one would have been her first on the jig. The experts meeting on Friday was very beneficial, reminding us to downsize, the baits, look for specific transitions and work the bait very slowly in colder water. Most of the fish were caught on the Smithwick with the black back, silver side and orange bottom. This has been effective color for me in the past in cold water and mostly sunny days.
