My family is heading down to Indian Point for a quick vacation this next week and looking to do some fishing and going out near indian point.  we are regular joes with an older bass boat so no moving to other areas for us.  I did some searching and the most recent reports are showing bass still in 30ft of water, but those were from about 10 days ago.  I was wondering with the recent cool if the water temp has lowered and if they are moving out of that summer pattern to the fall pattern.

 

Any ideas are helpful, in general, my dad who i am fishing with doesn't like to fish in 30ft of water blind since we don't have great instrumentation on our boat.

Based on the reports I've seen from that area, I think it is a good idea to try deep with jigs.  Might want to drag a Carolina rig or shaky head too.  

I'm coming down to Indian point Friday morning for the weekend, when you are dragging the Carolina rig are you putting the boat out in deep water off a point and making a long cast up to shallow water and dragging back to the boat??

I might try that, cast it up shallow, drag it deep, early in the morning, but in general I usually will fish it deeper this time of year.  I haven't been fishing a c-rig lately myself.  Going to try the dam area on Beaver tomorrow and I think I will try it a bit.

What bait do you prefer and how heavy of weight?  I've thrown it some and had some moderate success with a brush hog, but I literally never get bit on a lizard.  I think the C-rig should probably be used a lot more than I do.

My favorite bait is a Zoom Ultravibe Speed Craw. Also like an Ol' Monster for summer time.  Sometimes I'll go finesse and fish a Zoom Finesse Worm, or a Fish Doctor.  Pretty much use a 3/4 oz weight except if I'm fishing shallow I might go with a 1/2 or 3/8.  My experience is with the lighter weights you don't get hung up as much and that is the number one problem with the c-rig, - snags.

I really like Lizards for right before pre-spawn, fish will eat them up on the right days.  I never have fished a Brush Hog much.

I think it was Tim Sainato that a few years ago won a fall tourney fishing a c-rig deep, can't remember his bait but I believe it was a Zoom Centipede.  I bet Bill Babler knows the story on that.
