Today I fished from 7:30am – 1:30pm. We started in Fall Creek fishing brushpiles and stumps in 6ft-8ft. Our lure of choice was minnows on slip floats. After 30 minutes and not one nibble, we chalked that pattern up.
I moved out into the main channel(still up lake) and fished a couple of my favorit bushpiles in 14ft-18ft. 1 keeper and 1 short fish in 30 minutes!
I told my client we needed to make a serious change. We bundled up for the cold ride and headed down lake near Four Corners. We started at BCGS brushpile coordinate #5. The trees there were in 18ft-20ft, right on the channel. Tight lining minnows and Crappie Magnets(Pearl and Yellow/Chartreuse on 1/8oz jigs) we caught several, including 6 keepers! The next 4 hours we stayed mid lake fishing brush in 15ft-22ft with success at most stops.
Some of our other successful trees came across from Byrants Grove Cove near the cypress tree in the middle of the lake. All of the brushpiles we fished today were right on the channel drop or on humps. In total we caught 40, including 21 keepers!
Deep is the name of the game right now.
