Cold muddy water

Recommended Posts

So after this weekend I don’t know what I am doing obviously I am going to have rethink my strategy I Tried paralleling the banks with cranks and spinner baits but with only two bites I had to be doing something wrong 5 hours and two bites ain’t good but everything in me said the mud would push them up and to the bank but obviously I was wrong what ideas do y’all have for these situations I just can’t wrap my head around what to do in that muddy of water

Its so weird this time of year with rising dirty water. Sometimes they pull up with it. Other times, they hang back where the edge was. It can vary lake to lake or even portions of the lake they will pull up and others they won’t. This dirty water is going to warm up fast with the temps in the 70’s most of the week. So by next weekend I’d be looking for a lot of fish to be laying with their backs out of the water.

With rising, cold, dirty water, there are no answers. Best bet is to fish where the fish were holding before the rising water. They usually won't move up until the water level stabilizes. That usually means a jig or worm, deep & painfully slow. Or you can go extreme & throw the biggest loudest crankbait you have & try to get some shock bites. Sometimes it works. Something like a manns loudmouth or 3/4 oz rattletrap. Big colorado blade spinnerbait. Keep moving around. Find the warmest water you can.
