I have an old abandoned quarry near me that i fish a lot. Theres actually 2 lakes separated by a road. The water is clear, visibility is about 6-8 feet. Tons of trees fallen on the banks, lots of concrete blocks in the water, some vegatation. Theres a healthy population of 3-4 pound bass and the lake gets fished by a handful of people. We keep it secret. Aside from bass theres monster carp, pickerel, huge crappie and bluegill, catfish. Any tips or techniques for fishing clear deep quarry lakes. I fish from shore and have been doing great with 2-4 pound fish but i know there is bigger. The banks are shallow out until about 15-20 feet out then it drops off sharply into deep water. Water temps right now are around 65-67 degrees so im guessing theyre getting ready to spawn but i havent caught a fish with a bloody tail yet. Seems like theyre just coming up from deep water into the spawning areas.

Fishing is my idea of a good lip piercing!

Here fishing quarries......???

Hint; We would go catching bull frogs at night in the quarries when we were kids. I'd suggest frog lures.
The fish are out there just waiting for you to throw the right lure along with the correct presentation so why are you still here?
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....

i fish a simialar lake by my house. i wade out to the drop off at deepest its in 2.5' and cast along the drop off try poppers in the mourning. the midday fishing can be crappy cause the clear water and deep cover will take thm out of my reach
