Re: Water temp
I think water temp is also important, but I also think that the presence of bait will trump it in any situation. What I'm saying is, if there is bait present, there will be fish present, bottom line, especially this time of year when the bait is stacking up. I think a fish no matter what size will deal with less than ideal temps to stuff their gut full of bait. But overall I guess temp plays the biggest role as it will ultimately decide when the bait leaves...
It is not fear that grips him... only a heightened sense of things.
