Nightcrawlers-how deep?

Recommended Posts

 I haven’t been out in a while, but have my two young nephews coming in this weekend to fish.

 Thought I would get a few boxes of nightcrawlers and let them have some fun? 

 Was planning on sitting on some gravel points and rolloffs in 20 to 25 feet or maybe some bluff ends?

 Does that sound about right? 

Any help or ideas would be appreciated!

you kind of need to use your electronics tell you how deep.  if just going to guess, might be a good starting depth.  another factor would be the area of the lake.

Chris Tetrick ie Mid-Lakes Guide Service caught them yesterday in that Baxter to point 10 area as deep as 40 plus.  Said the bite was entirely suspended at 35 to 40 feet over depth, no structure, just sitting way out off the gravel breaks.

One of the solo pro's from last weeks derby told me he caught them on a jig and a C-rig on the bottom as deep as 35ft. on Sunday, dragging right behind the boat, so don't hesitate to look deeper than you might think.

When catching those deep fish, if possible don't fool with to many pictures, get them back in as soon as possible as they will blowup.  Take your time bringing them up and enjoy the feel of the tug, after all that's why we're out there.
