Spoonbilling slow in cold water

Posted March 27, 2014 at 11:02 am

There’s a reason old timers say, “As slow as molasses on a cold morning.” A lot of cold mornings in a row are affecting the movement of spoonbills that way.

Sharon said, “They are starting to catch a few now.”

Bobby said, “They are catching some fish. There’s been a few nice fish caught, at least three 60 lb. females.”

“I didn’t think they were catching any up here. They caught 11 under the bridge last weekend in one day. They caught three keepers. I didn’t think the fish were moving. I don’t know why, but they are.”

“I still think there are more fish in the water down around Roscoe and Osceola. The guys up here are catching fish, especially the guys that catch fish are catching their limit now. There are not a lot of people doing it. It’s better than I thought it was.”

“It’s improved since the first day.”

I haven’t heard anything about spoonbill.

I know some people have been catching crappie and walleye and that’s about it. The walleye were biting on the rip-rap of Stockton Dam Saturday and Sunday.

Caplinger Report

I’m not open yet. I missed your call on my cell phone so I called you back.

They did turn a little water loose last night, but not much. Enough they kinda got it running over the dam again, but it will take more than that to get the fish up here.

I heard they were catching some crappie and walleye up on Lake Stockton.

I’m not going to be open probably for another three or four weeks. I’m not going to sit up there and drink coffee and nobody show up.

We’ll start our reports in another month or so.
