Smallies may be in differrent depths or locations

Recommended Posts

There were a few posts back about smallies on the lake possibly being in deeper water in the Hedges area or further east of Hedges, past Bear Creek. Any reports of catches? I'd like to get out and give it a shot. I remember 3 years ago or so where my buddy and I would have contests as to who could get to twenty first within an hour! There somewhere! They haven't disappeared. Despite the gobies. Any info. would be appreciated.

Thanks,

JFish

I have heard decent number being caught off Braddocks but the size of the smallies has been more impressive than the numbers. I caught a few earlier this year that were just stuffed (presumably with gobies). It was amazing they would even consider hitting my lure seeing how fat these fish were. I haven't been out in a while now but I am sure with a little patience you can find them all around the lake as they are starting to make a good comeback.

Who needs depth for bass? Since I got my kayak a couple of weeks ago, I've learned that some of the biggest bass are in 1 to 2 feet of water where regular boats can't go.

I wish I bought a kayak years ago!

Thanks for posting,

I keep my boat at the Newport House, or should I say it used to be called the Newport House. So, I know about the shallow largemouths, I've caught some very nice fish on a tube jig or plastic worm right off of the docks, as well as in Devil's Cove. I'm looking to take a few friends out for some lake fishing that doesn't involve downriggers, maybe I'll stay in the bay.

I caught a 4 lber saturday just east of hedges in 35 ft. of water using a plastic crab. We're investigating again tomorrow night. Lewis shoal, east of braddocks, I caught a 3 lber as well.

I made it back there twice... no skunks but damn is it slow. I-Bay bass fishing (for me anyways) is brutal too. All we're catching is silver bass and monster sunnys.... anyone else doing well with the bass?

I-bay skunked me the other night. The water clarity is so bad there. It's tough to see the bottom when your in a couple feet of water.
