Kim City - Feb 13, A-Rig bite

Recommended Posts

I tried the a-rig this morning for the first time this season and had some success. I started out with swimbait, grub,,, etc and realized the few fish I was seeing were not interested in those baits. I had 4 keeper LM, one weighed 5.10 and another 6.3. Also had 4 shorts. Based on previous trips, I knew where the bait would be located. The LM were setup over trees and there was stacked shad about 70 yards away. I did not catch anything around the stacked shad. For some reason the LM preferred setting up in good trees vs being in the middle of shad. I tried three locations this morning and they all had shad and deep trees. There was no wind early this morning and the wind picked up around 10AM when I was wrapping up. WT 42-43. The rain seemed to put a little stain in the water. The vertical deep bite might be over, my screen showed no fish 90% of the time. The fish did not seem active today, so I was lucky to catch a few.

David G, this time of year I fish between Pt6 and Pt9. Just fyi, there are plenty of rigs at the Mill Creek ramp, so the area is getting a little attention.

Thanks! I like the mill creek area and did fairly well there a weekend this fall. I mainly asked because I'm curious about different sections of the lake. One of my favorite things about Table Rock is the diversity throughout different arms of the lake.
