Fishing Notes

Cold but productive day, size is improving dramatically. Bobby Garland Baby Shad and slab slayer baits on 4 lb. line. The bluff docks were loaded with fish in the Gravois but did not bite very good due to high pressure front. Probably fished 35 docks today and caught fish off of 15. Fished Osage and Gravois. My buddies Mercury started every time in the cold temps and ran perfect.

TIP: How do you keep your hands functioning in cold temps? Put one of the orange chemical hand warmer packets just up your sleeve on the inside on each arm. It takes 10 minutes or so for them to activate but they make a big difference. Every season I buy a 12 pack of black cheap jersey gloves and cut the fingers out. Yesterday was a two glove layer day.
