Feeding Frenzy For The Books

Recommended Posts

Lately I've been spending a lot of time fishing a local power plant lake. It has been quite a time, I haven't experienced this sort of stuff on such a large scale before.

 

There is a massive feeding frenzy taking place in the lake, I've fished for them twice now. It seems to be several acres of fish aggressively feeding on shad. They usually sit out deep over 40-50FOW, and there are a LOT of them. You can drop a blade or spoon to the bottom and catch bass in 50', throw a swimbait or a rig for the suspending fish that sit in the 10-20' range, AND catch them on topwater when they come up schooling. It is a mixture of largemouth, white perch, and both hybrid and "regular" stripers. There are also bass in the area pushing bait into the backs of coves, so while I'm out sitting in the middle of the lake, I watch the coves in case the water starts to erupt. The fish don't seem to relate to any sort of structure/contour, they just follow the food.

 

I fished on Monday and on Wednesday. In that time, the frenzy moved about half a mile, pretty crazy stuff! The area where the graph was lit up top to bottom on Monday, was blank on Wednesday.

What a blast!  Even on a cold day that activity will keep the fire burning.
