We are also hearing very good reports of fisherman having success while lindy rigging leeches and crawlers in 16-25 feet of water, and with the warm weather causing water temps to rise, this technique will continue to get better. The shallow water crankbait bite is also really picking up during the low light conditions of morning and into the evening....
