Texas Newbie Fisher

Recommended Posts

Good Evening.  I am located in southeast Texas and just wanted some insight into shore fishing in the fall.  

Also, has anyone fished the 3" Matzuo Prism Grubs?  If so, what info can you offer up about those?  

Now, those questions have been asked, I would like to offer something back to ya'll... instead of me just taking answers.  If ya'll have any photography queries, feel free to ask, as it is my passion and occupation.  

Thank you,

Jeremy

I'll try to tackle the fall shore fishing question. What i do when i get to a lake is try to figure out the mood of the fish. Not all fish are doing the same thing at the same time. Also from day to day or hour to hour fishing changes. I'll give you some insight on how i tackled a lake and stayed with the fish even when conditions changed. First day out.. I found that the fish where schooling heavy on bait and smashing the surface. So i pulled out my topwater lures and fan cast on the areas where i saw the action. I never got a hit. So i figured they might want something else so i tinkered around with crankbaits and found that i was getting more weeds than fish. So i tryed worms... nothing..not even a bump. Spinnerbaits came to mind..one missed fish was all i got. Then i got the idea to throw a diamond shad and 26 fish later i figured in whipped them. Day 2.. i figured with the cloud cover that this might be the day for spinnerbaits. I found 4 areas that has large schools of fish and i hammered them. I figured with the cold front moving in that a slow rolled spinnerbait would be the ticket and it was. (18 fish)Day3...High skys.. sounds like a tough day at the office. I started flipping the cattails and any wood i could find. I threw a 1/4 oz black and blue jig with a #11 pork. I found one area that held 4 good fish. The spot was no bigger than 6ft squared on the side of a point. The wood payed off with 5 more.(9 fish total) Day4...Temp dropped the night before but there was some wind so i desided to throw a rogue suspending jerkbait. The water had some color on it so i picked out a chart/black back. I started in the corners where the wind was blowing into thinking the bait should be there. I started off with hard jerks then letting the bait sit for awhile then jerked it a few more times. I caught 2 fish doing  that. Then i desided that the front might have shut them off so i kinda fished it like a worm with long sweeps then pause. Total fish 15..Day 5..I wanted to change things up and i figured i might have pressured the fish so i scaled down. I had been seeing alot of bait but most was small. I picked out a chart/blue back bill norman crankbait that most use for crappie fishing and started cranking. I fished from the middle to the shore and right up against the bank. The kinda stage cast till i found where they where hanging. Total fish 29.

Did that help out any? The main thing is to mess around till you can start putting together something. You kinda got to move with the fish and try to pick lures to best suit the mood of the fish and also account for your own fishing pressure and weather or water conditions.
