March and the early spring months are coming and that means bed fishing! I am not an experienced angler with bed fishing so could you please comment what I should look for, what I should use, and techniques to catch the big females. Thanks!
Just fished at Mt.Normandale Lake today and caught a few Northern and fat pre-spawn bass that were only about 2-3 pounds. I have been doing research on this lake and it was apparently popular at around 2008 and read that people have caught TROPHY bass there (6lbs+) and very large pike (35'+). I have seen a few large bass and pike there and there but I do not see or catch what they caught in 2008. I also noticed that there were people that fished the lake much more in 2010. I rarely EVER see people fish there now. Is the lake over fished? Are there still trophies in there? Any comments would help.
Does anyone fish this lake? I catch some pike and bass but are there trophies? If there are, what are some effective strategies? And I heard they were draining the lake a while ago. Have they drained the lake?
