MISSISSIPPI: Lake Mike Conner – Crappie Can be Found Holding Near Structure, Jigs & Minnows Work Well

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Bass fishing has been good.  Most fish caught have been fairly small, but some in the 2 lb range were taken.  Please feel free to take a mess of small bass home with you!

Crappie can be found holding near structure in deeper areas of the lake.  Jigs and minnows work well.

Bream anglers have done well using worms, crickets, and tube jigs.

Catfish fishing has been great!  Fish are biting best at night.  Worms, chicken liver, and shiners have been good baits to use.  The hot spot has been between the boat ramp and the dam.

FLORIDA: Redfish & Snook Are Under Docks and Near Structure

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Fishing was good early in the week, the middle was pretty much shut down due to our first strong cold front of the fall season.

Friday and Saturday were typical post cold front days with high pressure and blue bird skies, good bite early then tapered off as the northeast winds cranked up. Spanish mackerel, speckled trout, and ladyfish are plentiful on the deep flats. Redfish and snook are under docks and near structure on the north end of Siesta Key.

Charters on Sunday and Monday were similar as the front approached. Winds were stiff out of the east. Jeff Gorosh from St. Loius, MO took out his boys Sam and Dave on Monday. We started at first light tossing plugs for snook, but only fooled one small snook and a 3 lb jack crevelle. Chumming with threadfins on the flats near Otter Key produced nice sized Spanish mackerel, speckled trout, and ladyfish. We finished up in Phillippi Creek catching another couple of jacks, a half dozen mangrove snapper, and a redfish.

On Friday Richard Fildes from Orlando took out his future son-in-law Philippe out fishing. We started off at Stephen’s Pt., but action was spotty. We ran up to Helicopter Shoal and had good action on decent sized speckled trout along with a couple of Spanish mackerel on plugs and Gulp! Shrimp. We finished up near the Mercury Hole and behind the ski jump catching a few trout, jacks and ladyfish. Saturday morning’s charter was about the same at the Shoal, although the trout ran a little smaller.
