Re: High Land/Hill-Land-Fall to Winter

This is another great thread, I thought needed to be brought back to life. I really like fishing the lower sections of our lake in the winter, seems like you will always have much better luck down towards the dam, when the water starts to get really cold. Great post Tom.

Tom how would a beginner differentiate between a casting jig and a flipping jig?
Take a look at the Horizontal jigging article reference earlier in this thread and the difference is shown; vertical jig for flipping and pitching verses casting jig with longer shank hook.
Think maybe a new jig article should be done with all the jigs discussed with photo's etc,

Re: High Land/Hill-Land-Fall to Winter

Thought I would reactivate this thread, although it is a little early and more than likely summer to fall transition in September in most locations.
Pelagic baitfish like threadfin shad are starting to migrate into the creek arms as the day light period is getting shorter, the larger baitfish like herring and trout tend to move into current areas or river arm headwater areas. Moving baitfish means the bass are moving and setting up ambush zones along the bait migration routes.
This is almost as good as prespawn period for catching big bass, just not as easy because the bass are scattered more throughout the lake basin.
Everyone has their favorite lures and mine are; casting jigs, swimbaits, top water spook type lures and buzzers, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, soft plastics and spoons. I can go all day casting jigs and swimbaits this time of year and often do just that. However if I am not getting any action, then the other stuff gets pulled out. I also spend a lot of time looking for active bass with my sonar in locations where the bass should be; major points, secondary points, outside humps. channel breaks and isolated structure where the baitfish should be. Docks, heavy cover and most shoreline cover goes un fished because they are unproductive for me a very high percentage of the time during the fall transition period, unless the cover is wood and located on a migration route.
