Hello Everyone -
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the great spring weather! The fishing has really picked up over the last week or so. I have had several trips over the past few days, and the catch has gotten steadily better each day. I expect the bite to be "off the charts" any day now, but each day should be at least good!
I still have been using 3 main baits to get bit - locations are still the same as well:
1. Jerkbait - work these baits around secondary points in pockets along the creek channels and along main lake. The water has warmed nicely over the past 2 weeks, and the jerkbait bite has gotten steadily better. Fish these baits around docks adjacent to spawning flats as well.
2. Fish Head Spin - I have been working these around shallow secondary points. Slow has still been the ticket - keep the lure in contact with the bottom and wait for the fish to load up - they haven't been eating it agressively on most days.
3. Slong's Shaky Head - I have been working the 3/16 oz Slong's Shaky Heads around the same areas as noted above when the bite is less aggressive. I have been using a Wackem Pointy Tail and Trick Worm in pumpkin green for my bites. I have found fish up on flats too on certain days - look for the "highways" or ditches that feed the flats - the fish will position around docks that are closest to the ditches first.
