I fished the Tri county bass masters club event on patoka last sunday (3/13/2016). Personally it was the best day i have had on patoka since i have been fishing the lake. The water temp has quickly came up from a low 40 degree lake to a high 55-57 degree lake. The fish are starting to move into the coves and bays and are holding in 2-4 foot of water. The forage is still a mixture of crayfish and shad but the bigger fish seem to be feeding on the larger shad moving into the area.
