    Does cold surface temperatures in the morning, say 7-9 am, affect the bite? Mornings have been an unseasonable 33 degrees nighttime temperature.
    Maybe that's why we did much better after 12pm ?

    Crappie do feed at night and will strike minnows under a light. Just not sure if they would hit lures at night.

    If all you're catching are small fish, then other locations should hold larger fish. Lure size usually doesn't determine fish size especially when it comes to panfish though very small panfish...

    Maybe consider using light jigs and small soft plastics. Many times the horizontal retrieve not only covers more water but tells you what depth the fish are in vs the vertical d/s approach. Because...

    Make the two parts, hold each one over a candle flame, hold the parts together for 4 seconds. Done!
    All my hybrid designs are made that way.

    Thankfully I don't have that problem on the waters I fish. A few kayakers and canoers at times but never that severe the inconsideration. Weekdays for me or early on early off on weekends.

    Doubt it. They've learned to trust that stimuli completely and only those caught might stay away for a short time. Herd (school) mentality seems to rule.

    I'm sure they'd still work. Many lures from the past work as well if not better than many of the newest ones sold. That split tail design I still use with a Beetle Spin overhead spinner.

    I've found over the years that season vs time of day seem to matter. Early in the year once the water temperature reaches prespawn, fish location is more packed in around new shallow weeds. Post...
