Species: Walleye, Smallmouth Bass
Time of year: Spring and Summer
How to Fish: During the spring, cast out curly tail grubs on a jig towards the shorelines, slowly reeling them in.
In the summertime, trolling or jigging towards the lake's bottom is effective mid-day for walleye and smallmouth. During sunrise/sunset, cast by fallen logs, grass, and lily pads for smallmouth bass.
Choosing Color: Use vibrant colors if you are fishing deep or in stained water
and use natural colors if the water is clear and you are fishing in shallower water
- Look for points, shelves, underwater structures, and rock piles. If there are strong winds during the day, you will want to fish on the windblown side of the lake.
- Use 1/8 oz jig heads on calm days
- Use 1/4 oz or 3/8 oz jig heads on windy days
