Fishing Tips

"A positive attitude and an open mind are true characteristics of all good fishermen"

-Kevin Van Dam-

Late Fall to Winter Crankbaits

Water temps are falling as well as the leaves.  This is a great time of the year to be on the water and throwing a balsa crankbait. The side to side action of a wooden bait is tops in cooler water. Keep your bait colors simple. A shad pattern and a crawfish pattern are two reliable choices. Keep in mind the size and depth of your baits also. A #7 shad rap is a good choice as well as a DT 10.  A medium action rod, spinning or casting reel and 10 pound line is a great set up.
