RAIN, WE’RE GETTING RAIN! Yesterday, I actually sat outside…..well just inside my shop barely out of it, and watched it rain…..MAN IT WAS AWESOME!!!! We need a lot more of it but makes you feel hopeful the lake will raise this winter.
Sand bass are starting to show up again on the main lake points, depths from 10 ft. to 25 ft. catching all fish on CHARTREAUSE slabs right now. No schooling action yet but fish are just moving up following shad along the bottom; however, not all over the lake like we will see as we actually get into the Fall Fishing Season.
Catching good rod and reel Bluecat that are holding along the bottoms off points and humps in depths anywhere from 15 ft. to 28 ft….using fresh caught shad for bait.
Crappie are on brush piles anywhere from 12 ft. to 20 ft. and holding on the bridge columns as well…anywhere from 3 to 5 turns of your reel handle off the bottom using minnows and jigs
I’m looking forward to catching lots of Hybrid Stripers this fall and WE WILL! As the weather gets cooler we will start seeing feeding fish… actually, it may be we should watch for the feeding Seagulls to find the fish for us. So keep your eyes open for Gulls and Terns working over the water feeding on shad that our sand bass and hybrids have chased to the surface. Folks, now that’s TRUE Fall Fishing!! When you see this SCENERIO I hope you already have a chartreuse sassy shad tied on. It’s the best bait hands down to catch feeding hybrids on. Just make a good cast across the feeding frenzy with a steady retrieve ..it’s almost a SURE HOOK-UP!!
Hope everyone has a chance to fish a little this fall. Maybe you have family coming down or just want me to put you on some fish!!
Don’t forget to fish because NOW is a great time to think about Gift Certificates for Christmas or birthdays
