MONTHLY TIPS
-- As Fisherman, we must stick together and share fishing tips with others.
- Crappie can be caught on moving baits but many times a bait that is not doing much can be best.
This is where a live minnow held in place (this takes some patience) will catch Crappie.
If you find there is only small Crappie in a spot, you may need to move away from there
as may not be among these little guys. Also, do not assume Big Crappie are only in deep water.
- This is a good time to
find and fish weedlines and the edges.
* Always remove weeds & other debris from your hooks or lures before returning them to the water.
- During the heat of summer, fish relate to the Thermocline in lakes.
Thermocline is created when the water in lake stratifies into various zones or layers.
The Thermocline is a mid-layer of water with cooler temps, which fish find more comfortable.
Most sonar units will display this layer or sink a thermometer to find that significant temp drop..
- If the lake you are fishing has docks, be sure to fish around or under those docks
- When Bass fishing on windy summer days, try a spinnerbait over weed beds.
** Support our local Bait Shops to assure they will be there when we need them for fresh,
lively baits and current fishing info or advice as well as the latest tackle
  - Just a Thought..   Get Out and ENJOY..!

  - Fish Facts: Plastic Worm Many tried to copy the popular bait - the worm - but Nick Cream created the first soft-plastic version in his Akron, Ohio home in 1949, heating the plastic on his kitchen stove. Although it catches a variety of species, the world of Bass fishing is where this lure had the greatest impact..
