Water temps dropping fast, afternoon bit

Trip Summary

Took 2 excellent clients out for a morning trip, no moon, perfect conditions, and yet the bite was very slow. Water temps are dropping very fast (less than 60F at surface) which are pushing the bait fish hard. My observations and those of other catfish anglers seem to suggest that afternoon trips are best when the bait fish run up to the shallows. Even though slow my client caught a 59 1/2 inch Dinosaur Lake Sturgeon. Amazing catch, a unicorn in these waters.
