Where do we go on the Lake?
Our tactics and spots we visit vary from day to day and even season to season. Still though we do have our favorite spots that have historically produced very well for us and our clients.
On any given day we may be found plying the waters below the Hobson Pike bridge at the lower end of the lake where the water is much deeper. Normally we’ll set down rods with live bait. If conditions are calling for it we’ll fish in the 12-15 foot range and drift around using our electronics to get on the fish.
Then again, depending on conditions and the season, we might be around the 7 Points Landing area trolling down the bluff wall with umbrella rigs. While another place we like taking our clients is the Big Bear Island area where there are some deep jumbled timber masses that we’ve found to very productive.
Striped Bass are known to be a traveling fish and they’re always on the move. There are times when we’ll hit the open water to find surface swirls that indicate feeding activity. We like to move in and let our clients throw out weighted and non weighted flukes into the swirls. This can be very productive at times and is a more exciting way to boat nice large Stripers.
