Finesse Hair Jigs
Didn't catch a ton, but it sounds like we did better than most. Low and slow is the key.
Water temps are in the low 50s and water level in lake is down. Fished PB&J Zman Hula Sticks on a 1/15 oz Nedlocks with very slow presentation. Water was slightly stained with about 10 feet of visibility. Fish were fairly deep, sitting in areas near ledges, that held some vegetation/grass. Fish presentation very slow, the bite is extremely subtle and mushy. You will need a very sensitive rod, such as the Dobyns Champion Extreme DX742SF, to feel those really subtle bites. I like to use a very long leader given the visibility, a good 12 to 15 feet of leader to my braid. Fish aren't as deep as the 40 ft depth mark, but look for them to continue to push out as temperatures drop. As we move into the winter bite, the bass will hover near ledges and south facing rocks that warm in the sun during the day.
Fishing early morning and late afternoon has produced better quality fish. Targeting deep structure and grass lines with a spinnerbait has been the ticket for larger fish. Drop shots and under spins also produce a lot of bites, just not the size. Fish can be caught at depths between 10 and 40 feet. Find the structure and grass edges for best success.
