Post Spawn On The Colorado

Cold and slow day fishing the Colorado River today with Chet! Temps ranged from 35-44 degrees with mostly cloudy skies and a light wind.The fish were sluggish and required a slow crank using a #5 & #7 Countdown in the Hot Mustard Muddler pattern as well as a 1/16 oz Crappie Jig! I caught this nice chunk 19” Brown as well as a nice 18” Brown while Chet caught the first fish of the day a fat 18” Brown.Chet ended with the most numbers wise but I ended with the best fish

Very nice, with the colder water it is time to slow down and scale down the baits.

nice Bryan

btw if scaling down isn't effective... don't be afraid to go bigger

Thx guys! My best Brown was caught on a #7 Countdown on the slow crank and my next best fish was caught on a #5 Countdown real close to shore on a slow crank.My friend caught all of his on a black 1/16 oz Crappie Jig! I didn’t get one hit on any Jerkbait action! First time in quite a while that I didn’t get any fish on the Dynamic J-Spec!
