    The water temp thing is odd.
    I’ve caught fish both deep and shallow on the lower end of the lake with water temps down to the mid-30s. Maybe something about the lower end being deeper and having more stable temps has to do with the more consistent winter bite? I feel like i just jinxed myself by typing that… Anyways. I work with a guy that used to fish priest a lot who always tells me that you can never fish too shallow in the winter there. So, whenever we get bored with the deep stuff we always run some shallow cranks to at least warm up the arms and hands. In the past, I’ve had some decent fish on flat sided crankbaits in early February. So it never seems like a totally futile endeavor to do a little shallow cranking.
