The crank bait I was using was a medium diver . Every fish I caught today was by slow rolling over and even in submerged trees and branches in about 3 - 8 feet of water. I also noticed the fish moving a little deeper than the previous week. The 1 fish caught on the rapala shad rap was caught by my friend Allen the same way but the fish didn't seem to want either the tight wiggle or the natral shad color. This was the first fish caught and he never caght another fish all day . Allen had another rod with a chartreuse and white spinnerbait 1/2 oz. and nothing all day either. SINCE THE CHARTREUSE SPINNERBAIT DIDN'T YIELD A BITE I WOULD SAY THE KEY TO TODAYS FISH WERE FROM THE LOOSE WABBLE AND THE BRIGHT COLOR IN THIS STAIND COOL WATER.
