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, because it’s winter, 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.
