Best tactics for Roosevelt Lake

Recommended Posts

Heading out to Roosevelt Lake AZ this weekend and looking for some advice on what to stick with. 

I plan to fish smaller areas (likely between the dam and the salt) from a canoe w/ electric motor. I’ll have 3 rods rigged up, a 7’1” med/heavy/fast, a 7’10” med/heavy/“cranking” rod, and a 7’ med action spinning rod. 

What would be 3 good rigging methods for working spot to spot with as few rigging changes as possible. 

I’m fairly new to bass and a little overwhelmed so any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Haven't Roosevelt in awhile, need check on the water level?

If you are starting near the dam then think about 1 oz and 3/4 oz plain football jig in purple and brown with GYCB cinnamon with purple flake (221) 4 or 5" Hula grub fish down to 35'.

Spinning, 1/4 or 3/8 oz drop shot about 18" below size 1 drop hook and Roboworm 6" straight tail MMIII worm.

If your not against using live bait we used to catch the snot out of them using minnows back in the day. Down by the d**n in 30’ of water. We were trying for crappie when we started but every time we went we caught a lot of largemouth. It was usually around New Years.
