    That’s such a heated shall we say and debated topic .....I think whatever the low water temp is in the winter at about 10 above it they are on the move or already in place to some degree .
    Hormones, moon phase ,water conditions and other things have play in it as well
    I am sure some shallow lakes warm daily enough after 4 or 5 days of sunshine and warm weather to get the ball rolling
    Don’t know the answer to the exact temp as I never have figured it out ,but to be it’s time to poke around shallow some and make sure they are or ain’t there .....
    Some lakes vary temps from way up creeks to the main lake almost 20 degrees as well

    One thing I learned early on for sure is if you’re waiting on a water temperature, especially a magic number, you’ll probably end up missing a lot of spawning fish. Applies to other fish as well. As said above, it’s already time to be fishing for them. Listen to the man upstairs lol. He knows what he’s talking about.

    If you know spots you can usually find em shallow this time of year, try them out. Don’t stay in one too long if there’s no action. If they’re not there yet, try the closest deeper water spot or spots to those spots. This especially applies after you’ve found some shallow and cold weather moves back in. I’m no expert and still have many questions myself, but I have found this to work for me this time of year on foot.

    I'm not 100% positive, but I believe the amount of daylight hrs plays a role. I am certain though, that the days are getting long enough for us to be probing the usual shallow hangouts.

    Down here I never look at water temp. I watch the trees, When leaves emerge from the willows the crappie are spawning. When the mesquite or pecans have leaves; the bass are on beds.
