Kim City - Nov 14 - General Info

Recommended Posts

The video reports this week are very useful and informative. Today, I fished a few hours early, then about an hour this afternoon. I caught a few good SM this morning on a jig and a few K's on a spoon. This afternoon I caught a few keepers on a spinnerbait (SM & LM). There are some LM up shallow and they seem to like main lake windy steeper banks with flooded buck brush. The LM bites I get are very shallow and I have caught them on a CB and SB. Regarding the spoon bite and gravel run outs, if you do not see shad on the flats then check the down stream area where the roll off begins. Finding plenty of shad on the main lake is pretty easy.

There is a deep spoon bite that happens this time of year that is not mentioned very much and it lasts for about an hour first thing in the morning. It involves 'resident fish' in a feeding frenzy with very limited shad in the area. I prefer deep spawning coves and some mid creek locations. The resident fish will feed around a dominant feature (trees,,etc) and then just fade away. This morning I caught all three species fishing vertical in a deep spawning cove  (spoon and ice jig). I tried casting to them with a spoon and swimbait, but the vertical presentation worked best. This morning, I could see the fish feeding from 20 to 50 ft. The LM in the picture was at 47ft.

The deep bite is going pretty now. I fished a spawning cove and a creek this morning. The fish are feeding on very small shad about 1.5 inches. So I am catching them a 1/2oz white spoon and a underspin with 2.8 swimbait. I see 20 times more fish than I catch. The spoon is fished vertical because casting is not working very well. I catch about 70% SM and 20% K's and an occasional LM. Seems you have to keep the spoon in front of them for a while. I checked a gravel run out today and did not see much so I went into a creek and it was loaded (also birds everywhere). You will also encounter a lot of gizzard shad at all depths so just keep that in mind. Yesterday was a good redfin day because of the mild temps and cloud cover. The fish were chasing shad on top. A regular swimbait does not work for me, but if it did I could catch a lot more. WT about 57. I prefer staying in 40 to 55 FOW and try to catch the deepest fish. Thank goodness for the SM. Also you may want to net your fish vs boat flip, because they spit shad everywhere. Had about 10 keepers this morning, but I bugged a lot more.
