We are in the fall transition period and fishing can be a challenge. Fish are scattered, so keep a variety of baits on deck. Most activity is still on the main lake and main lake points. For the next few weeks, the fish will remain around 15 feet or less.
A buzzbait works well early. Chatterbaits and swimjigs are good in wood. Medium crankbaits are catching fish off points and flats. A shaky head and finesse worm works well off docks. Jig and craw combinations catch deeper fish. Covering as much water as possible during the day is a good game plan. Tube jigs and minnows for crappie on deep brushpiles along mud banks. Shad are catching some good catfish in low light periods.
It's great to see the Nolin River open again! Thanks to the Army Corp and Park Service.
Wear your PFD and take the family fishing.
Fall fishing event at Cabelas in Bowling Green this weekend. Hope to see you there.
