Carters Linesides !!! Good especially for big fish. Carters has never been known for numbers, but is is known for big fish of all species. With the the linesides being my personal favorite. This pass week my clients have boated and lost some monster fish. We fished a limited schedule this pass month do to the weather and me coming down with the flu. But even with limited days on the pond we boated four fish from 21 -24 lbs and lost some really big ones.
The key to Carters this year is Shad. Every year these fish seem to hit one bait better then the others. Last year it was Alewife the year before Trout. But this year Shad is king.
We are seeing limited action on Planner Boards and Free lines this year. Most of the action we are getting on these techniques is right at sun up. The down line bite is by far the best bite on the lake. all the main creeks are holding fish. Down lines fished from 50 – 80 over bait is working best. The bigger your shad the better. Remember your not going to load the boat. But trophy’s are rare and they are biting right now. Call me if you would like to go chase a big fish.
Spots Great !!! There are big schools all over the lake right now. A 1/2 oz spoon is working extremely well on the fish. Look for these fish on a 40-70 bottom. Backs of the creeks and main lake pockets has been working best for our crews….
