A Little Help!!

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am taking my wife up for the evening bite tonight. She has never been on the lake and I have only been on it 4 or 5 times. We will be driving up 169. If anyone has any good spots and techniques for the southwest side I would love some help. Help a guy out, if my with has fun and catches a few it will be well worth it. Thank you for any help.

Ranger1,

I fished off of Sherman's point last weekend and had success in 22' of water on the north side of the point. That depth puts you on the break from 19' into 25'. Lighted slip bobber, red hood, leech. You might want to try switching to crawlers if a bug hatch starts. Try switching hook colors. Don't think that what worked yesterday will work today, although it often does.

I have also heard that Indian Point is a good place to start. There has been good success out of Garrison and Wealthwood. Go through all the threads in this forum and many of your questions will be answered.

Don't get married to a depth or a spot. We moved four times within the first hour of fishing last Saturday night until we started getting fish. We fished anywhere from 25' up to 14' and found the fish concentrating at 22'. That could change at any point, on any day.

I'm sure others have some info to share.

I fish on the SW corner 99% of the time. If you wanna launch there, you can try Cove bay public access of Weekends Bar & Grill. If you plan on slip bobbering, there is a great rock by in and around the bouys near the Cove Bay channel. You can't miss it, there are 5 or 6 sets of channel markers coming out of the bay, but you can anchor and slip boober the rocks to the east of the channel toward the point. If you wanna drift, I saw a bunch of boats do great drift from the middle of the bay out toward the channel.

If you stop in at Weekends tell them Chris Graber sent ya, Keith will do all he can to take care of ya!

D-man, I would love to, but I don't have anyone to fish with that has a boat. All my fishing buddies with boats are busy this weekend.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.

      Bluegills and why is knowing I can catch a bunch and you never know how big it will be when that bobber disappears under the water.
