Where do you go?

Recommended Posts

The water temperatures have been around 60 but a big cold front has pushed it down to 55ish. Suppose to stay cold with bluebird skies. You're on a reservoir in the South and you're launching in the middle of the lake. Would you head down the river towards the dam for the deeper water or would you go up the river towards the shallower water?

For those that care I'm talking about Logan Martin.

It all depends on what I want to do.  There are fish at both ends of the lake and they all have to eat.  I have been fishing both ends of the lake where I usually go.  The fish are biting at both ends on grubs, tubes, and jigs.

Depending where the wind is blowing i would go with it. If the wind is pushing up then the bait fish will get moved, an vice versa for it blowing down. I have never been on the lake before but I would defenitely try getting both ends if time permits.

hope this helps any.

let us know how you made out.

Theres gonna be fish at both ends but I would go to the sunny side if I was fishing there. I wish the water was 60 here! Were at the 40s already! :'(

We have two teams going, so the game plan for the practice day is to split up and try each. Hopefully one of us can get something going.

Mid Lake area: the upper and lower points leading into creeks and pockets throwing crank baits, rattletraps, spinner baits and jerk for both spotted bass and largemouth bass.

Main river ledges, points, stump filled drop-offs and some small islands as well. Texas rigged worms and lizards, Carolina rigged plastics, tube baits, creature baits, jig combos and using jigging spoons from shallow to deep water of 12-35 feet.

Small 4 inch worms or small lizards, crayfish imitations and other soft plastic lures rigged on jig heads, light line and light tackle. This is a good technique during the fall and winter seasons fishing around piers, boat houses, marina release sites and man made rip-rap rocks found along bridges, the dam and rock lined causeways.

I would focus on the highest percentage areas since you have a very limited time to practice. ( I have never been on Logan Martin but it seems to be a river type lake)  I would run any bridge pilings and rip rap around them, mouths of creeks (typically the points where the creek intersects the main lake), bluff type walls, and since the water is in the mid 50's I would run the very back of creeks searching for shad balls.  I would throw crankbaits, spinnerbaits, jigs, and shakey heads.  Also it seems that the spotted bass tend to like the flats and shoals this time of the year.  I would burn a 3 bladed spinnerbait across those but like I said, I have no prior knowledge of the lake.
