Headed down in the morning. What are they biting on? This is my yearly trip and I don’t get out there much. I’m thinking jig, big group worm, top water, and spinner bait? Any specific colors?

Hello moguy-

It's been a couple weeks, but deep (15-20' deep) cranks on main lake points were doing very well for me, along with Carolina rigs.

I was throwing shad colors on the cranks, and a green pumpkin/blue brush hog on the crig. Also caught a couple good fish on jigs around docks on the same kind of points, and a wobblehead with a sweet beaver got a couple keepers for my 13 year old nephew. Points with wind blowing on them seemed better than ones out of the wind, but I think current from the water running thru was the big factor in setting up the fish.

should be about the same pattern as I think they are still flushing plenty of water through..

I may run down this week a day or two if my float trip idea doesn't pan out.

good luck and post a report, can't let that pay site have all the good LOZ info to themselves!

Prolly have the right idea.  They have been pulling a lot of water so the current usually positions the fish and I would start looking around with that in mind.

It's all about the brush right now.  You can run the points like everyone else if ya wanna fight the waves, but truthfully if you just hit all the 10-18' brush piles you can find.....whether out on the mainlake where the current is, or back in a sheltered cove , you'll likely do ok. 

Start out fishing fast, usually no need to sit on one pile shaking and jiggling for 5 minutes trying to make one bite.  If he's there and catchable you'll get the bite right away.  

Everybody is fired up about fishing mainlake points in the current now (or at least that's what they are all crowing about) but I promise you that the current don't mean squat.

I caught them on a black spinnerbait pretty good last night. Had a few jig bites and worm that were really subtle. I didn’t have to be in the brush, but being near it seemed to be helpful.
