part of linda's day on the water

Recommended Posts

i will let the pics tell the story.  linda had 16 or 17 keepers and i do not know how many we caught total, but a bunch.  the bigger ones that i caught were 42 ft. over 60 and in timber.  we caught a lot at 35 ft. over same depth.  same two lures - 3/4 GrassJig head with swimmer, and a 3/4 ZincSpoon in powder chrome.  sorry no background in the pics.  all you need to see are the pics😄.

Too late. I recognize that ripple on the water and know right where you are.

Great day on the water. Congrats to you and your better half. Between you and Babs good to see the fishing finally picked up after about a month or two of pretty pitiful fishing.

Congrats, great day on the water.  Lots of nice Blackies.

One of the local guides out of KC sent me a screen shot from a couple of days ago.  He had 40 on this location with 30 keepers   Talk about worming up for the spoon.  You Bet Ya.

Bo, post us a screen shot of the timber and the shad that you are seeing.  It would really help most of us in learning the type of deep structure you are fishing. 

Would love to see how the fish are relating to the shad and how the fish and shad are relating to the timber.

Most all the guides are catching them like the above shots without any shad or structure other than channel swings and rolloffs.

Really appreciate your knowledge on deep structure.

Thanks Bill

ok, i will see what i can do.  hope you can tell from monochrome.  the main thing is spending the time and gas looking for huge schools of shad and watching for signs of fish hanging around in the area next to, above or below the shad.  i have always found that bass are never very far from a big food supply.  i would have to bet that there would have to be plenty of shad very close to the bass you are catching.  glen andrews always told me that you will find shad without bass, but you will not find bass without shad.  sometime in the future, it will be wise to fish a jig in some of these same areas because the crawdads will move in to feed on the shad remains and the bass find them.  keep in mind that these bass can be very deep depending on where the shad remains end up.  with no thermocline now, bass can live at any depth they want, and that will be where the most food is.
