I don't fish bait so can't help you there but advise I give you is fish around the gates not open water more fish holding in those areas. I saw this guy doing really well with bait he would use a really small pinch on or flyline his bait only 12-15 feet out and walk along as his bait went down current he never got further that 50 yards befor he got a fish. Striper and catfish. I use flukes and LC128well im headed out tonight so well see how it goes if anyone has some advice id be more than willing to take them along to some spots that are a long walk that i can just drive to cause we farm next to it thanks
the bite has really picked up in the last week ,catching in areas that usally only hold a couple of fish and pulling them out in numbers now ,3 inch swim shad twitched near the shoreline and 5 to 10 feet down. now that I moved into the 21st century and have a cell phone as soon as I figure it out I,ll post more pics of the days action.The bite is ON !!! 10 landed and 2 lost in 40 minutes . Same old lure worked deep with a quick twich. My brother had 5 by the time I had to leave. All in the 14 to 17 inch size.
