After watching the Titan’s game I had to hit the water to unwind a little. Started out shooting some docks with 1/16 jigs and an assortment of hot grubs and tube jigs. I was catching short fish but no keepers. Then I hit a lay down tree that ranged from 8 feet to 4 feet of water. I started out on the deep end tightlining a Bobby Garland MoGlo slab slayer with 1/8 jig head. At 4 feet I got the familiar thump and had my first keeper, I worked the brush for another three keepers all about 12″. Then I went to some stake beds in the 4 to 6 foot range. I cast a 1/16 jig with twister tail in blue/white with chart tail over the stake beds and picked up another couple keepers before I ran out of light. Water temps were in the mid 70’s, I was fishing up around Bledsow Creek but believe this pattern would work throughout the lake. Hoping to try the Crappie magnets I got last week from Brian next trip out, with the limited time I had I went with what I knew would put fish in the boat.
I think this is going to be a really good fall season,
Good luck to all,
