GTB 2014 Water Temps
« on: January 02, 2015, 11:19:14 AM »

So I was watching this Youtube clip today from last year over 4th of July weekend.  The guide said the fish were just moving up.  In 2013, I saw spawning fish in the south end of East Bay on June 10th.  Were things that far behind last year?  I wasn't able to take a vacation last June so I wasn't there.  Just curious.

we went mid-june and it looked like it was almost done on both bays. Now i'm sure you can move north and find it in prime time well past the 4th.

just looked it up - was june 28th.
here's our video ;)

Thigs were so jacked up  up here last year. We were bed fishing in the beginning of august. They were still spawing but just kickin out black rotted eggs.    The water temps never got above 70 at all last year. They barely made the mid 60's  Made the fishing kinda suck because there was no summer pattern on any body of water here

Cool video ,  I  fished that area the first  week of Sept. The water was cold, fish were at 40 ft  to 60 ft. Drop shot was still catching fish.

Skinny dipper on a 2k deposit swim jig with no skirt. We had 2 6lbers in that area in the morning before the cameras were on on that same bait.
