The fish were among lily pad stems and a fair amount of wood cover, so a I rigged a small swimbait weightless on a Daiichi Copperhead hook, added a light bullet weight and fished the rig slowly along the bottom. I suppose because of the cold, none of the fish we caught thumped the bait even somewhat decisively. They all were just suddenly there, swimming slowly with the bait.
On to another lake today. Different property but still within Alabama's Black Belt Region. It's supposed to get warmer, and yesterday was much warmer than two days ago. I wonder how the fish will bite!
