MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- A good effective summer Crappie tactic is trolling when Crappie are suspended within a "Comfort Zone" as lakes
stratify in layers (thermocline) during hot weather. Watch your sonar for fish, check their depth and adjust your presentation.
- When fish stop biting in an area you were catching fish, do not assume you caught them all.
Something has triggered them to change and if it has become cloudy, this can cause Bass to move into shallower water or areas.
Or, if it was cloudy and the sun has come out, look for fish to move tighter to cover - areas of shade.
One other influence is fish will move shallow when water levels are rising, and/or move deeper if lake level is dropping.
- WATCH FOR CHANGES -
- To improve your casting accuracy from boat to bank, simply keep your distance from shore constant.
This will allow you replicate the same motion each time..
- TAKING KIDS on a FISHING TRIP is much more than just catching fish.
