Cherokee Practice Report 2.7.15

Conditions-

Water Temp: 40 - 43 degrees

Air Temp: 32 warming to 60 degrees

Skies: Mostly Sunny

Notes:

We put in at 25-E at 10 am and began fishing between the ramp and Falls Creek. The water between Macedonia and Falls Creek was stained with 1-2' of visibility. We focused on channel swings and bluffs for the first three hours catching three keepers, one on a jerkbait and the other two coming on a jig. 15-20 mph winds moved in at this point and the bite shut down for a few hours. We ventured into the back of German Creek with no success and found water that was two degrees colder than the main lake. After German Creek we hit main lake banks and channel swings near Gilmore's. The water clarity from Macedonia down to Gilmore's had about two more feet of visibility. Our final keeper of the day came around 4:30pm on a jerkbait. One major note is that all of our fish came on banks that were in direct sunlight. The baits we caught fish on are below:

Lucky Craft Pointer 78 (Chart. Shad) ; Lucky Craft Pointer 100 (Chart. Shad) ; Strike King Structure Jig (Grn. Pumpkin Crawl)

I plan to get out one more time before our tournament and I will post another report.
