Preparing for the spawn run


This was a brutally cold winter, but here in Georgia spring is starting to show its head, here is what to look for.

When the water temperature starts getting back up to around 50, expect these fish to start staging along north lake points close to the river channel, in deep holes along the river banks, rock walls, and bends in slacker current around river bends.

Once the water temp warms even more expect the fish to start making their run. There are many different beliefs in exactly when they run, such as “when the dogwoods bloom” or “first week in April”. While some of these rule of thumbs might hold true some years, I believe it matters strictly about water temperatures.
