  • Where to fish on Sat., 9/21

    Posted by mikenores on September 20, 2013 at 5:23 am

    Again plan to launch boat at Long Hunrt ramp about 615am. They predict highs in the low 70’s and some rain and/or thunder storms, so:

    1) Should we fish North end of lake, mid lake, or South end of lake?
    2) How deep to fish at what times?
    3) What baits to use at what times?
    4) What baits to use when it is sunny?
    5) What baits to use when it is cloudy?
    6) What changes to make, if it rains?

    Your suggestions and insights will be appreciated.

    There has been a lot f activity up lake, so I would fish up there. Focus on the creeks. I have been starting to catch fish in spring creek, at the mouth, all the way to the back. I think all the creeks are starting to turn on. Start shallow 1-3ft, the flat on the right just before you enter the creek has a lot of bait on it in the far back. If it is cloudy or sunny I would rotate between tipsters(buzzbaits) and crankbaits. The clouds will keep fish more active, so thats a good thing.

    Good luck my friend,
    Brian

    Brian – Just so I’m clear, when you say “up lake” you’re actually referring to the section of the lake that starts to turn into the river, or the Southeast section. Correct?

    Yes, that’s correct. I know its weird, up lake is south and down lake is north.
