Kim City - Feb 11 - Swimbait vs vertical bite


Recommended Posts

I fished this morning for a few hours and things are changing (like shad locations and the deep bite techniques).  Shad can be found on gravel runouts, in the creeks, and on the main lake. Finding fish associated with the shad is a challenge. 

The deep vertical bite can still be found but the fish are very picky and not grouped up like they were. I have found the swimbait bite to be more reliable because the fish are using the entire water column and they seem more willing to bite a horizontal presentation. 

I have not spent any time looking for gravel fish, I normally try areas with plenty of trees.

The two pictured fish were caught using a swimbait retrieve. One on the main lake and the other in a creek. Had 7 keepers this morning.  the boat in 30-50 FOW.

WT 46.5 to 48.5
