North Shore & Gravois


Recommended Posts

It's such a beautiful weekend I thought I would go out for a few hours and see if I could find some bass.

I see the water temp is around 55 here in the north shore area, in the spring I would be moving closer to the shoreline with that temp,

does that go for the fall/early winter also? Should I be in the backs of coves? Thank you

Well, I said that I would report back after today....so here's how it went for me...     After helping 14 rigs get launched the ramp was a literal sheet of ice, not a single dry strip to keep a t

Absolutely.😊  Not only that....If at anytime it ceases to be FUN, and begins to resemble WORK.... I'll forget that I'm trying to win anything, and just go load up on White bass or Crappie.   

Next time you decide to fish against the Livescope, I will send you my address and you send me your entry fee. That way it will be money well spent, because I will be putting it towards a livescope. J

It doesn't take long to establish/eliminate a backend cove bite.   Always worth a try.  

Typically bass are along channel banks, on offshore structure/cover, or suspended out in the middle of nowhere during this time of the year.    

In the northshore area sometimes the stretches of bank that have no docks, or the places where there are larger gaps between docks, are more productive.    Shade tends to become less important and less desirable to bass when the water temps are falling.

thank you wrench, i was hoping that you would reply.

i have seen you refer to the red eyed shad in the spring, is that something that you would also try now?

this afternoon i caught 3 small bass, 1 on a pointer jerkbait and 2 on a chrome & blue rattle trap.

If you are getting some bites on the lipless bait then by all means experiment with it.   Personally I've never been on a good late Fall/early winter bite with it.....but if I was getting some bites on it I sure wouldn't throw it aside.  

I've only been out chasing Whites lately so I'm kinda stupid right now on what's catching the green fish.  

The dock talk I'm hearing lately is all about jerkbaits, A-rigs, and swimbaits.  I'll know more about the bass bite Tuesday because I'm fishing a derby......Going in blind 🙄

I should've asked in my best Karen voice.

Do you provide ample breaks and snaaaackks?😂

Absolutely.😊

There's no shame in loosing to a bunch of livescope junkies.  😅
