3 of us went out to the New Town area, again. We started our search in 20-25 fow, but struggled to find decent numbers. Once we moved in, shallower, we found an abundance of fish on a river channel shoreline. We picked up most of our fish drift jigging, and drifting with bottom bouncers. Both minnows and crawlers worked. If the wind pushed us .8-1.0 mph, the crawlers did better, and if we were able to slow down to .4-.5 the minnows did better. While drifting, we caught fish from 4 fow to 18 fow, with a greater number of fish in the shallower depths.

After we had our fill of drifting, we switched to pulling cranks and caught a good number of fish in 17-20 fow.

Water temp was 58 degrees, where we were at.
