Opening my eyes slightly, the digital clock on our bedside showed 3:10 a.m. Anxious to get out on the water, I quickly grabbed something to eat. On the short drive to the access, I remembered the screen shots of my depth sounder. At dusk a couple of evenings before, baitfish and ciscoes, visible on the screen, were suspended down 13’ to 16’ in waters of 98’ to 130’. Light shy ciscoes move close to the surface at dusk and until sunrise, feeding on bugs disappearing to the bottom at sunrise.
