Help Developing A Plan For A Fishing Outing

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

I am intending on fishing tomorrow (Sat, 5/4/13), and there is a weather system that is moving in. The weather has been iffy and unsettled all week here in Alabama, but the rain will finally move in tonight (cooler temps with it), and the forecast is showing rain all day tomorrow. I am fishing on Lay Lake, which is a Coosa River impoundment.

 

What are ya'lls thoughts on how to gameplan for the day tomorrow? I am comfortable throwing a wide range of baits/tactics, but I don't know where to start looking for them, or how to develop a gameplan/techniques to start building a pattern out of.

 

Thanks.

if i dont have a game plan i generally start out throwing reaction baits and depending on how that goes i will fish cover slowly with jigs or soft plastics. let the fish tell you what they want. i fish 5-7 days a week and i generally always have a pattern going but today was one of those days when the pattern completly switched and could not buy a bite on the baits i had been throwing the past 4 days. good luck and experiment

Keeper,

 

Me and a buddy went out and got soaked haha. Thankfully, we had some decent rain gear. We started fishing a long island point that was in about 4' of water, with a drop-off that went into 25' that had a lot of timber on it. We didn't catch anything on that point, so we went into a pocket off of the main channel and caught, of all things, 2 freshwater drums... :). We fished pretty hard until 2, and didn't catch any bass, which was unfortunate. 

 

Thanks for following up.
