Line-Sides is Fair at best. This burtal cold weather we are having has given the fish lock jaw. The water temperture is falling fast, and I look for the shad kill to start early this year.

If you are willing to brave the cold then mid-lake would be your best best. Try to find the clearest water posible and fish  Shiners, shad and small trout on free-lines and planner boards. Remember to down size your hooks to match your shiners for more strikes.

After the sun comes up switch to pulling umbrella Rigs. I have had my best luck this week pulling my rigs 145 feet behind the boat at 3.1 to 3.4 miles and hour.. As the lake starts to clears and the temperture starts to warm back up I look for the umbrella rig bite to get great.
