hows fishing around you?

Recommended Posts

soft plastics are the only things that are working currently, other than that it plain out sucks in nj. Any other nj fisherman agree? Ive been missing bites like crazy they seem just to be not holding on to it as long or just plain spitting it out

Tubes and spinnerbaits are working great for this part of NJ. Probaly changes from body of water to body of water.

Slow is the word up here in New Hampshire. When I get out on the lake this weekend I will be expecting water temps in the 40°Fs. The areas around points have been great with reaction type lures and then later its short and shallow with a JP. I am not looking forward to the enevitable and quickly coming "changeover" period. Does anyone have any tips for fishing in "Mid-Changeover"?

I've been catching all my fish on spro aruku shads, sammy 100's, and a split shot rigs.  Fish are all over the place.  Some days there on shallow flats feeding like crazy and other days there grouped over points feeding like crazy.  But lately the ticket has been covering water until you find those fish that are feeding like crazy.  A wonderful fall pattern

Soft plastics and a slow moving jointed shap rap are the only thing that have gotten a bite over the past couple of weeks here in southern NH.

Here in NH the water temperature yesterday was 49.5°F warmed upto 51.5°F by the end of the day. They key of the day. Deadsticking, Deadsticking, Deadsticking no matter what you fished they didnt want it moving, except for my 1 bite off of a reaction type lure. Hey NHguy what lakes/ponds do you usually hit?

I'll say this.....it slow!

The weather seems to change from 40 to 75 within a week.  Evertime the weather fairs or stays constant for 3 days, you get a small window of opportunity to go fishing.  It's really got the fish confused.  It's cold at night, windy and cool during the day, the moon is playing tricks on them, etc.  It's just plain tough.

Sat., me and Jolicious hit the lake for a long 10-11 hour trip and had the hardest time finding fish.  The weather was great early that morning but about noon, everyone started going back in.  Now I know why.  We caugh one dink on a crankbait and after that, we couldn't find the fish.  When we did, they were tight to sunken trees and drops and scattered all around.  No schools or active fish anywhere.

Personally, I think the fish are scattered all around on hour and then when the weather fairs, they are all grouped together in clumps feeding.  It's tough fishing on clear water lakes with these conditions.

Yep, it's definitely getting chilly around here and they're not chasing their food like they were even a few weeks ago. I mostly fish the Wilton Reservoir which is always good for a few 1-2lbers and the occasional 3+. There are are a few wily lunkers hiding in there but my mistake luck (or ineptitude) has kept me from meeting them personally...so far. It's close and most of it can be shore fished.

My brother and I have done some kayak fishing on Massabesic Lake and Lake Potanipo but didn't have the most productive days at either. Massabesic was a bit large for us to do as much exploring as we would have liked in the limited time we had that day and the wind on Potanipo had us spending too much time correcting our anchorless kayaks. There are a few other spopts we're still hoping to hit before the ice sets in and come spring we'll be looking for some new holes. Any suggestions?

Well from the sound of it you guys are in Kayaks so bigger lakes maybe harder to tame. Some place that I think you guys would do well the Hollis stretch of the Nashua River, Otternic Pond (locally called "Tonic Pond") in Hudson, and Turkey Pond I forget what town that is but its like exit 4 off of rt 89.

Right now I am keying on my home waters of Cobbets Pond and maybe another trip over to Canobie Lake. I dont have too much hope in the rest of the season, but hey it beats doing repairs around the house. Hey head over to the "Northeast Fishing Location" I have got a thread going in there for NH Bass Fishermen. I'd like to hear your input.

It's been pretty slow in Missouri too. Seems like a lot of the fish are in transition. I have caught a few on jigs and a couple on senkos...but other than that all seems to be pretty quiet.

Well, thats amazing because I having the EXACT same problem, too.  I'm here in KY on Barkley and Kentucky Lakes.  But over the last 2 months, I have nearly 100% cured this problem.  Like this last Saturday...  I went to the lake and started fishing really slow with a shakey head worm.  I would have a fish just hammer that bait, and start to move off with it, then before I could even think about jerking, he was already gone.  This happened at least a dozen times.  Then I pull out the Chartruse, Garlic flavored Dip-n-Glo dye.  Instead of dipping the tail of the worm in this dye, dip about 1/2 in. of the head of the worm.  Rig it back up, and I never missed another fish.  I have done this countless times over the last 2 months, and Its never failed me yet.

Hope this helps yall out

Crankbaits have been tearing up the numbers on Fork.     No stoppage to report.  Last weekend, fished Saturday before the front arrive late Sat. nite.

The bite was on all morning and afternoon.      Only caught two with plastics, a nice 6.5 lber on Red Bug brush hog and another nice bass on a 10" plum apple zoom worm.

Fish were not relating to bottom.     They're were 3 overs caught at our tournament, 2-9's and a 8, and Ike was on Fork also and he weighed an 11.64 at the Minnow Bucket.    Big Bass were moving before the front.

Ike was filming some show, but didn't stop to watch.

Matt.

I've had mixed success in northwestern Missouri.  When they're biting, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and jigs have been the go to lures.  I've caught a few on plastic worms also, but these were on slow days.

Lots of fishing but the catching has been slow with the fish in transition. They are between seem stuck between late summer and fall patterns but then so is the weather.
