What bait is working best?

4 posts in this topic

My dad and I are heading up to LOW tomrrow and wondering what bait or presentation seems to be working the last couple of days. Any advice is appreciated.

We had the most consistent bite on Saturday and Sunday with a glow jig with an orange dot on them. Shiners were the bait.

I changed lures throughout both days but had no real luck with anything other than the orange glow.

we were up 19,20,21st,fished with both fatheads & shiners,the fish didn't seem to have a preference on which minnow they chomped.Hot pink with white and glow green seemed to be the most active holes.Deadsticking was working better than jigging as the weekend went on.Watch your electronics for suspended fish picked up a few up to 12'off the bottom.

good luck and be safe.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
