Gosh, The best time to land the :B is now. The waters have turned over and clearing up by now and the bait fish are schooling up. Time to cruise the lake and find those schools of pre-winter hungry fish. Their wanting to fatten up before hard winter hits. As Tiny Tim said on here a month ago (November can be the hottest time) Don't put those boats away - just dress a little heavier and go for it !
