Headed up this weekend for my bachelor party. Any tips for this time of year?
Yeah, dont get married.
BBL is a very underestimated bass fishery with both LMB and SMB. Crayfish and sculpin are the primary forage so anything that imitates those should work.
thank you. Just got done packing and threw a few bags of crawbaits in the pack. What are sculpin? I know the ocean kind...
google p-r-I-c-k-l-y sculpin without the hyphens
Cottus asper is the scientific name there, ror_sal
Cool. So sounds like smaller swimbaits and work the bottom. Thanks gentleman!
Maybe a swim jig? Or skirted grub? Just guessing. See if you can find a video about how they move around..
Wow! You learn something new everyday! But when I looked it up it didn’t say it had poisonous spines.....
Trout should be on the northside of the lake. Usually up by the dam in the later hours. I like floating night crawlers but those damn gobies hitting your line can get pretty annoying!
just grabbed a couple skirted football jigs for the crawbaits. Will post a report after the weekend.
Looking forward to your report! I'm heading up there in a couple weeks and haven't fished there in 15 years.
No spines.... if you fish nightcrawlers you'll find those annoying things swallow a worm longer than the dang fish! Super annoying, hope you have good luck there, Rory. I did see a couple smallmouth in the water but couldn't hook any
Did decent dropshot kvd dreamshot..smallies were biting..caught a trout on a dropshot roboworm...
Well. Just ended up drinking with my brothers a buds all weekend. Didn’t even make it to the lake. O well. Lake looked beautiful. Will have to plan a actual “fishing” trip one of these days. Still hungover.
Good ol Oktoberfest!
didn’t even leave our cabin haha.
