Cold Water Sandpit

Recommended Posts

Being that I'm from Nebraska, the weather is taking its annual trip down cold lane. This weekend, however, I'm still planning on heading out on the water to catch a few.

Most of the articles I've read have given good advice on where to fish, and what presentations to use, however, I am not on a large, natural lake. I will be fishing a sand pit that's about a mile long, and reaches depths of 25-30 feet.

I know I should still use a pig-n-jig, lipless crank, medium/deep cranks or jerkbaits. Any advice on where to catch these, there are really no sharp drop offs, mostly just gradual declines, but there are humps/flats that I usually fish off in the summer.

Should I try where these flats get deeper? Or stick to the deeper, open waters.

Thanks in advance, and please move this if it needs to be moved.

We're right there with you down in Kansas. Try that shallower water first, that's where the more active fish will be. Start with faster moving baits and then to the slower baits. If nothing is shallow then start working the first breaks into deeper water. They should still be feeding but will probably be close to the deepest water in their wintering areas.

Im in the same boat as you guys, i fish a strip mine that is crystal clear and max depth of 35 feet. I have found some deep snags that i like to throw a 7 inch weedless paddletail swimbait at. I dont get a lot of fish, but my quality is there. The key is "slow." My other option is to find areas where the weeds are dying, i like to crawl a C rigged baby rage thumper, or a black an blue jig with a paca craw trailer.
