Sorry I can't do that and create a crowd.Great report, Wayne - but you failed to mention exactly what Canyon you were in "uplake"? Shame Shame! (LOL)
It was winter, a good many years ago, in the back of Farley, and we were spooning up a few stripers fairly shallow in 15'-20' of water when we lost the bite, but suddenly had a boil within casting distance of the boat - caught mostly smb out of the boil.
Wind tomorrow will be 14-20 mph. Saturday is calm but cold. I would wait until the next Saturday for the best chance of warming water and good fishing.I'm looking at all the weather forecasts and can't decide whether it's worth driving up tomorrow. Anybody think the fishing is going to be ok?
In February the memories of all years are important. If we have that long experience and then see something unusual along the way we can then know what to expect from those incidental occurrences that happen. Right now there are many that want to know if stripers will be in the deep main channel this spring or in the backs of canyons. It is so easy to catch lots of fish on bait when stripers are deep and hungry; yet if they stay in the backs of canyons then fishing is more challenging for most anglers. Some are waiting to plan their trip depending on what happens with striper movement. Right now I think we will have a mix of stripers holding in some canyons and moving out of others. So it is a tough call right now. I think I can get it figured out in March.I wrote that wrong, I meant to say, I have seen several different nov, in which they boiled. I didnt see any boils, this past Nov.
