Jighead I was there today and the only fish we caught were on rocks. 0 mud, 0 gravel, 5 on rocks with slip bobbers. Were rigging on the flats with no luck. Fished Indian point from 11 to 12:30 and boated 3 fish. Saw a few others around us caught. Had to be off the lake by 1 to get home for kids baseball or we would have stayed on the rocks for a while longer.

jighead,

Many fish have been caught over the last couple of days by guys corking on the edge of the mud flats also.

Does bobber fishing usually work better at night or is it an all day thing?

I use bobbers more at night, but it can be an all day thing. You have to have the waves pounding into the rocks though.

Some people are having success pulling spinners already out on the gravel and the mud. That's what I have heard. I saw the PWT leader board and it looks like the guys that we have talked to were having success that way.

The only way I caught fish last weekend was with spinners. Seemed like the only thing they wanted.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then.

      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
