Bite last night

1 post in this topic

Hey Guys!

Caught 12 real nice fish in about 27ft of water before dark last night. Only 2 fish over 20 inches, but several nice eating fish. Followed the fish up the break into shallower water come dark. Casting jig and minnow as slow as I could possibly fish it. Fish still aren't exactly snapping, but I wouldn't be surpised if the nice weather today will help put together a hot bite. I guess the rain dance we were doing really worked! Don't forget to really work your graph, and don't get caught fishing memories as these fish scattered a bit from the storms. General rule of thumb is the deep bite starts from about 32-36 feet while the shallow bite can be found in less than 5 feet. You'll find a fair amount of eater fish mixed in with slot fish in the deeper water while there will be a larger percentage of slot fish in the shallow water. When fishing the deep water in low light or the windward sides of structure don't be afraid to check up top the structure or toward shore as the fish will at times move up chasing baitfish!
