I was out near Grey Mare and Cobb Rocks Monday and you could see the bottom in 6-7' of water.

Dirtier the shallower you go and into the cricks, clearer the deeper you go. Fish everywhere, however.

Did anyone’s travels take them East of rock island down towards Spring Warrior/Dekle grounds? Water clarity can be and stay dirty/dingy for a while down that way....
