Cut your ear off and rig it up on a drop shot while she's still bleeding. Your catch one mighty big bottom feeder usually a sucker. It'll be totally worth losing ur hearing for that one fish. Ps be sure to go after 3pm that's when they strike real good at this particular lake.

Use lipless rattling crankbaits and spinnerbaits in areas with moving water. Also try plastic worms and lizards in Junebug and red shad colors to fish offshore hydrilla beds when the bite slows down.


Crappie

Crappie are really turning on with the cooler water temperatures. Drift live Missouri minnows and grass shrimp in open water, or troll with Napier deer hair jigs and Hal flies for schooling fish. Find areas with sandy bottoms around bulrush and cattails, and fish a grass shrimp under a cork for spawning fish.


Bass

  12/6/2012 7:00 AM

Largemouth bass fishing should improve as the water temperature drops over the next few months. Use lipless rattling crankbaits and spinner baits in areas with moving water. Also try plastic worms and lizards in Junebug and red shad colors to fish offshore hydrilla beds when the bite slows down. Fishing with live wild shiners will be the best bet for larger bass during late fall and early winter.
