No Working Birds - Look on Structures
Bill Mellendick invited me to fish with him and Mike Lawrence. The water was flat, the sun was shining, and the air temperature was around 60 degrees as we headed out. As normal for this time of year, we were looking for working birds to help us find fish. That wasn't happening, so we started checking ledges that dropped off swiftly into the channel, underwater mounds, points, and other structures.
The current was flooding and was to move the swiftest just past 4:30pm. Just past 4:00pm we landed a triple with all fish being larger than keeper size. Catching went on until we left as the sun was setting. The most productive location was a drop off just off an underwater mound. They wanted 5" Z-Man plastics teamed with a 1/2 ounce jighead.
Thanks Billy for the outstanding trip.
