shads or sticks

5 posts in this topic

When trolling do you usually start out with stick baits (Huskys or rogues) or shads? Do you find one better early (Sept) and/or another better late (Oct/Nov)?

I have had better luck with the shads early on and as the water temp falls the stick baits pick up. I also found that as the water temp falls late in the fall the shad raps pick up most of the eaters. (But who wants an eater that time of year, it's time for the hogs wink.gif)

Andy, im off for the next week and will get out at least once. We had our little girl last tuesday and I made an agreement with the wife to hold off for a bit until night cranking picks up and hunting kicks in. I also have a pup im trying to get ready for all the birds blush.gif. We will get out!

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
