Old man winter keeps trying to knock on our door here at the Bend but unusually warm weather has been sticking around. The mornings are cold and the evenings are mild. We have had a substantial amount of rain and the lake level is sitting above full pool. This is the time of year where you can catch fish anywhere from shallow to 40+ foot. The deeper fish can be caught on A-Rigs, crankbaits,Carolina Rig, drop shot, and spoons. The shallower fish are biting on traps and spinnerbaits.
