Winter Flooding

Once the water came up it took the fish a day or so to get used to the rising water. Most of the shad on the lower end of the lake stayed in about 6 feet of water and that is the depth I have been doing most of my damage. I have been looking for a super shallow bite every single day this week but for me it has not worked out. I am sure some people are catching fish way up shallow in the muddy water but for me I have been driving creek to creek looking for cleaner water and focusing on that 6 foot mark throwing a swimbait and rattle trap. With the water being some what stained I have added an underspin on my swimbaits for that extra flash. I hope this helps some of my followers for this up coming weekend have fun!
