DATE:3-23-02
LAKE LEVEL: 562.9
NORMAL FULL POOL: 564.0
SURFACE TEMP: 58 in am - 60 in pm
WATER CLARITY: Pretty good where I fished


CRAPPIE UPDATE: Friday the 22nd, high winds and freezing cold.Wind chill factor when I started fishing was -6.
Shot docks all day in a hurricane.Had 14, shocked me out of my tennis shoes.Triple green and bubble gum seemed to be the
color.What fish we caught were right on the bottom.Wind was so bad we were shooting with 1/16th's.Trolling was not an option.
Saturday the 23rd.Actual surface temp was 47 degrees and 44 in some places.Running with your surface temp about 1 ft deep.Set
down on the water 1- 1/2 feet deep it was 56 degrees. I trolled Godfrey's, Chain Saw,State Line, I shot docks for 3 all day.
Sunday: Being desperate I decided I would go to Guntersville and fish for bream.I got blowed off the lake.Had 3.Drove back to
Weiss and fished Dead Boy for 6. Everything I marked and everything I caught was 5-7 feet deep in 10 -12 feet of water.I am
flapping!!T
The good news is the high pressure is dissipating and the water is warming and they are calling for rain and a cold front on
Tuesday.I would shoot myself but I have a headache and I can't stand the noise!
