  • Anyone fish since the rain?

    Posted by simplecircuit on March 30, 2014 at 8:07 am

    I’m planning to head out to elm hill tomorrow afternoon (Sunday).
    Did anyone fish the lower end today? If so… What was the water temp/clarity/level?
    Seems like since spring has started to set in that the info on the boards has started drying up.
    Any info much appreciated and will be reciprocated. I’m just trying to put a mental gameplan tomorrow prior to putting in.
    I’m thinking flat side crankbaits, lipless crankbaits, Umbrella rig, and maybe spinnerbaits in 0-12ft of water.
    If that doesn’t work, finesse jigs, shallow drop shot, and grubs / finesse swimbaits.

    Sounds like you have it pretty much covered. Was trolling Friday and caught several nice hybrids/rockfish.

    Going out again tomorrow.

    I crappie fished up lake. Had a good day….just put up a report.

    I’ll be out for bass this week getting ready for tournament next Sat.

    Buddy went out Friday before the rain crappie fishing and didn’t do that goods he did have a guy bass fishing close to him and watched him pull 3 bass around the big island in Suggs creek off crankbaits. Water temp was still around 52 back there before the rain.

    Hope that helps somewhat
