LOUISIANA: Swimbaits, Killer Flats Minnows All Produced Fish Today

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Dig-In-Anchors.comDularge bite is off the charts, and the pigs came out to play today.

Solid fish from 16-19 inch’s all day long.

Jonas Golden and his son Aaryn joined me for the incredible bite today. Good as it gets as the fish were in a frenzy smashing the baits hard. Swimbaits, Killer Flats Minnows, and Cocodrie Cocahoes all produced fish today. Tightlining the baits slowly is the ticket to put limits in the box.

Thanks guys as is it doesn’t get any better than today’s trip!!

LOUISIANA: Swimbaits, Killer Flats Minnows (TTF) & Cocodrie Cocoahoes Produced Fish

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

Shallow Water Anchor SystemDay 2 with Scott, Luke, Kolbe, and Nate Leary from Mississippi was just as good as yesterday or better!!!!

We knew we had a window before the front to Burn Hack the fish and we took full advantage of it. Our first two stops only found about 20 fish. Our next two stops had everyone in the boat slinging in the yellow mouths everycast!!! The approaching front had the fish in a frenzy and they were eating up like there was no tomorrow! My crew had a blast filling up the box again and the memories made will last a lifetime. Swimbaits, Killer Flats Minnows (TTF), and Cocodrie Cocoahoes all produced fish today. Color didn’t matter today as the fish hit all colors and all baits.

Big thanks to Scott and the boys for such a memorable two days of smashing the fish.

MISSISSIPPI: Columbus Lake – Throw Shallow Running Crankbaits, Spinnerbaits & Swimbaits

Friday, November 11th, 2011

The crappie bite is fair to good and should continue thru this month.

Hit the old river runs right now for best results. The runs that are closed off on the upstream end will be the ones to target. Crappie are holding on stumps and laydowns in 4 to 8 ft of water that have deeper water nearby. Crappie jigs have been outproducing minnows, but that can change daily.

The bass reports are still fair with most of the action happening in the same areas as the crappie. The river runs are producing a few quality fish, and the gravel pits are holding good numbers of keeper-size bass. The bass seem to be holding just off shoreline structure and relating bait vs. wood or grass. Throw shallow running crankbaits, spinnerbaits and swimbaits where shad are active.

Catfish reports are the same as for Aberdeen with most folks hitting the channel and the mouths of the old river runs with jugs and rod-n-reels with some success.

ALABAMA: Topwater Baits and Swimbaits to Keep Action All Day Long

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

I spent all morning and afternoon on the water.

I  got a little of a late start, and hit the water around 8 am. Even with the late start, it didn’t take long to get things going. On our first spot we saw fish busting and hooked up right away. We boated  several bass and one stripe. While I had every bait known to man tied on poles, we only fished two of them. We used topwater baits and swimbaits to keep action all day long.

The bass bite is great, we caught (4) over three pounds.  With the biggest weighing 4 1/2 lbs, caught on a 4″ chart. swimbait. We boated most of our fish on 3″ swimbaits, but were able to boat fish on topwater, off and on all afternoon. We did a lot more bass fishing Friday, but we boated four striped bass too. We fished mostly points and hit on almost every one of them.

What a difference a couple weeks makes, these fish are feeding.

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

The lake level at Greer’s ferry is at  470.42 that is now 9.39 feet above normal pool and falling.

The hybrid and white bass are doing excellent at different times of the day through out the day, on spoons,in-line spinners, hairjigs and swimbaits, fish coming up will eat topwater baits and knock-offs, find the bait fish and the fish will be close

Bream are biting well up shallow and out to 38 feet of water on catalpa worms, crawlers and crickets

Crappie are biting fair at night under lights

Bass fishing is good shallow early and late up shallow and also in the shades in the middle of the day try topwaterbaits,frogs and buzzbaits, the deeper fish will eat football heads tipped with worms, texas rigged worms, and c-rigs.

Walleye are slow

Catfish are eating well on everything thinkable

ALABAMA: Lake Guntersville – In the Mornings Cranks, Swimbaits, Jigs & Spoons

Monday, August 1st, 2011

The mornings are the time to be out. We are killing them up to about 10:30 to 11. The fish are schooling but when the sun gets high they disappear. We can still catch them but I have got to change tactics. If they pull some current it will position them and they will turn back on in the afternoon.

In the mornings they want cranks, swimbaits, jigs and spoons. During the afternoon a worm works best but the size goes down. If they are pulling water they will go back to the morning baits.

We have been catching good numbers, 40-60 fish per trip. We are catching some quality fish in the 5-6 and 7 pound range also. Most of these schooling fish we are catching are in the 1.5 – 3.5 pound range.

Good luck out there.
