Where to start?

Recommended Posts

If it wasn’t for ppl putting up reports I wouldn’t have a clue where to start fishing every time I go out. My question is what are the deciding factors everyone uses to pick their starting spots? Knowing what worked yesterday is far from a sure thing the next day as we all know. Even once the lake sets up what makes you decide to fish the thermocline in 150fow or 300fow?

It's really tough, and this is only my 3rd year. But some of my best days have when I marked very little or no fish or bait. Some of my worst days were over staging Kings with a solid screen of fish and no bites! I usually start where the latest report said, and if that isn't available I start in 80 to 100 and either look for bait, or troll north towards deeper water. I am finding temperature does not play as big a factor as I thought. When the bait is in an area seems like the fish ate there regardless of the temp.
