Default Becomming a better fisherman

I fished for Bass for many years till I got into biking . Now I am back for some relaxation . I fish deeper water and target bigger fish .

I started walleye fishing again a couple years ago . I catch some nice stripers or Whipers as they are called . I do good in the around walleye season when I start fishing and fall drifting or trolling live bait .

My bait of choice seems to be the rattle trap and crawlers because minnies die in the heat. I found them off a point back in a cove where they were pushing the shad in to feed 1 time . I caught a few others on traps but I want to become better .

I use a spinner worm harnest and jigs at times . I use crawlers mostly due to the minnies dieing after the water warms up .I have some spots I seem to catch my fish at 1 lake . Both lakes are about 350 acres . Lake Pinchot has a channel maby 15 ft and at the dam 25 ft . The lower end is shallower except the channel at 15 ft and shallower .

Lake Redman is like a soup bowl on 1 side and goes from shallow to 25 ft within casting distance from the shoreline the second lake is shallower . Now my question is how I can become a better striper fisherman . Lake Redman has 20 lb pluss real stripers . That lake has no weeds at all . Both lakes I do my best with worm harnest and traps and minnnies in the fall.

I try to fish the channel in deeper water except points where I may cast shallow and back to deeper water . I know summer the water warms and fish move to the deep . I tend to fish more deep water , points , humps . I know stripers are schoolers and follow the shad . Is there any tips to help me catch more fish . I put in the time and do a lot of reserch and any help is appreciated . Thanks

Try fishing bucktails or jigging spoons. Try some of the glow bucktails I have listed in the for sale section of this site they glow for up to 24 hours. Fish them deep or bottom bounce them.

You also might want to bottom bounce using a 3 way swivel. You can beat trolling for covering a large amount of water. Figure out what size the bait is and match it.
