One key to successful fall fishing on natural lakes is targeting the edges of thick, green weedbeds. You can spot these edges where the vegetation grows almost to the surface. In deeper areas, use your sonar to find thicker clumps of grass.
To attract and invariably catch more fish, an angler should always use scented bait such as Power Bait or Gulp! Especially in conjunction with live bait-which has a tendency to fall off or get pulled off by the fish. The Power Bait or Gulp! will always remain, giving the fish something to come back for-giving the angler a "second hook-up".
Walleye jigging is about "feel". Feeling the bottom, feeling the bottom transistions, and most important feeling the walleye bite. Berkley Fireline can make you a better jig fisherman. Its no-stretch characteristics lets you feel everything that's happening-yet it casts smooth and has superior knot strength. With Berkley Fireline-Feel more bites, catch more walleyes-period!
During summer, bass hold in woody snags at the edge of islands and side channels of larger rivers, where they feed on shad that swim by in the current. To lure them out, cast a jig upstream and toward the bank, then work it back through the logs and trees with a swimming retrieve. Experiment with a steady retrieve much like a spinnerbait or a hopping action that sometimes triggers extra bites.
I am a power fisherman. Power fishing is a broad term used to describe using reaction style lures to cover vast amounts of water. Included in this power fishing style, my favorite way to catch bass is skip pitching and swimming a jig. Skip pitching involves using a conventional reel and getting a jig to skip far back under cover. Swimming a jig involves slowly pumping a jig at various depths horizontally through the water column.
On larger lakes like the Great Lakes, trout move shallow where shorecasters can target them with spoons and swimbaits. Good areas to fish include mouths of tributary rivers, points, and other access areas like piers.
Forage choices, and not seasonality will dictate what types of baits to use, when fishing for Redfish. Crustaceans (crabs & shrimp) are the primary food source for redfish during the cooler months. Baitfish such as pinfish and sardines will be the primary food staple for the redfish during the warmer months.
A common method for fishing marlin is to drift live mackerel baits deep amongst baitfish schools. The rigging that works best is to attach a 6-10 oz torpedo sinker with a small rubber band to a snap-swivel which is attached to 10-15' of #100 leader. On the hook up, the rubber band will break free and not foul on the leader.
One of the simplest, most efficient, and most effective ways for walleyes during fall is shorecasting at night. Walleyes move into current areas, onto shallow shoals, or along weededges to feed once waters cool, weeds begin to die, and baitfish become more vulnerable.
