Kim City - Mar 16th - Swimbait

Recommended Posts

I fished from 7:30 to 10:30 in Kim City area and had decent luck with a underspin and plain swimbait. I fished the mouth of a spawning cove with my boat setting in 45' and casting to 25' and slow rolling over trees. I had 10 fish with 8 keepers, 3 LM and 5 Ks. One LM was 5.11 using a 2.8 inch plain swimbait. Another LM was 5.5 using a 3.8 inch plain swimbait. This time of year, the plain swimbait can out perform an underspin. I caught a few keepers on the underspin and the rest on a plain swimbait. The area I fished had very little bait compared to when I fished it 10 days ago. Ten days ago it had too much bait in the area. The WT was 43.5 to 46. Some shad are still dying, but it seems to be minor. I could not move around much due to the amount of boats in the BFL tournament. For me, the main feeding time was over at 9AM. I would estimate my best 5 weighed 18.5 Lbs.

awesome, and the bite right now seems to be from first light to 9 or 9:30 and then it is hard to get a bite until very late in the evening.

Awesome fish man!!  And great report.  Saw a similar set up near Big M today but didn’t get to that spot until about 9:30 and couldn’t get anything to bite- sun was high and lake was slick. Now I wish we would have been there earlier.

I am glad the BFL guys had a nice weather day for fishing. Their practice days were tough conditions with extreme winds and/or rain. I noticed a fair amount of names from Truman and LOZ. The fish I caught were postured for a jerkbait, but I have more confidence in the swimbait to work at different depths above the trees. Also, I am not sure I could have caught much throughout the remainder of the day.
