MONTHLY TIPS

--As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
  With freezing temps here, we hope have considered    
Getting Fishing Gear & Boat Ready For Winter
and prepared for storage till that first fishing day next spring.
- With the cold water temps, fish may become tougher to find & catch as they have moved to deeper cover like brush and structure such as ledges or creek channels.
Try sinking baits or go vertical, and fish SLOW on those points with sharper tapers..
- With cold weather, the Crappie will also be deeper and minnows will work around vertical structures or steep breaks and better if there is good cover.
- Bluegills will hold in lake or pond basins adjacent to any weeds and not always in the deepest water..
** Support our local Bait Shops to assure they will be there when we need them for fresh, lively baits and current fishing info as well as latest tackle - Just a Thought..
- - BE SAFE & GOOD FISHING - -

  - Fish Facts: - 1810 George Snyder from Paris, Kentucky was a 19th-century reel maker. He was a skillful watchmaker and silversmith; being a good practical angler, and seeing the necessity for a rapid multiplying reel for black-bass fishing with the live minnow, he proceeded to invent one. Snyder's first reel was made for his own use, about 1810. He afterward made reels for members of his club, and others. He is credited for inventing the very first American-made multiplying (geared) fishing reel in 1820 that was designed for fly fishing, and named the Kentucky Reel. However, without patent or trademark protection, the Kentucky reel was quickly copied by many others..
