Taking out boat lift and dock today, thought I would wet a line this morning. Just jigging minnows and leadheads. Caught 5 shorts, 1 legal and probably 20 or more white bass. Water temp is still way to high for this time of year. 57-58.
Docks usually start getting pulled most places in mid October. This time of year,even if you come to a launch that the dock is in, by the time you get back it may not be. I have seen them pull docks during the day, even with a parking lot full of boat trailers.
However, usually the dock at Sunset Bay stays in until ice up.
