Lathem Lately?

Hit Lathem between 1-4 today. Got 3 bites but only landed 1. The spots are big and feeding out deep Every now and then - a big school erupts. I’d paddle over and make a cast but there’s too much bait to compete with. The water feels warm still and the bait is out in the middle and not shallow and in the back pockets yet.
I caught this one swimming a jig with a rage craw.

Good fish. Is it still open till 8pm or have they started closing early?

Havent been since July. Weather looks good tomorrow but have never been there this late in fall. Gonna do my usual and freeline some shiners drop a jig on marked fish and hope for some top water. Anyone want to join me.
 
Good to see you again, @dank1296 . I ended up with 4 crappie from 11"-13" for supper, and caught 2 bass on the spybait, a dink and a 16" maybe 2 lb. Losing a heartbreaker bass (est. easily over 5 lbs prob 7-8 IMO) right at the boat kinda put a damper on the day, but, hey, that's fishin'.
 
Crappie are at around 15-20 feet on the trees, but very scattered. I was able to find some on Livescope, all pretty big (over 12"), including a 1.85 lb 15.5" slab (released). Be prepared to deal with some wind - standard for this time of year.
