Fishing Notes

Today I got on the water about 3 and fished until 6:00PM. I fished some coves at the 25mm. While there are a lot of fish shallow in spawning pockets and on beds everywhere, I decided to do something a bit different today. James Dill, BB expert, mentioned to me a couple of years ago that fish will come up from the main channel and spawn on the bluff ledges and main lake cuts, often this spawn is a bit later than the shallow coves spawn but it can produce some giant bass. So, I flipped the jig today on some of these bluff ledges but only caught a few shorts. As the spawn is in many different phases for fish, some are in pre-spawn, some spawning and some post spawn, so I decided after trying some bluffs to flip the jig along the creek channel banks leading into and out of the spawning pockets. I had a pretty consistent bite doing this, catching two quality 3 pounders on lay downs. The water is pretty stained due to the pollen on the lake, so most fish today were caught in 4-6′ of water. I caught a few shorts on the Carolina rig, fan casting it around spawning pockets, but that was not my primary focus today.
