how deep are you fishing? last time I fished miltona I fished in 18 feet and they would bite from sunrise until about 9am and then it would start up again at about 3pm. I never try deeper during the day I usually just go in and come back out for prime time.

Anyone been fishing in the group of houses to the East of sandy beach access at the end of the plowed road?

They must be catching some panfish being that it looks like it is only around 6 feet in that area.

any size to the fish you are catching? Last time I was there it was about 1 keeper for every 10 fish you catch, but those little farts sure kept me busy. If those little guys make it a couple more years we will have some darn good fishing on miltona.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
