Shallow Water Smallmouth and the Versatility of the Kut-Tail

In the Northeast, some of the toughest fishing is during post-spawn. The weather is finally nice, the lakes aren’t yet super-crowded with summer pleasure boaters, yet tournament weights are generally on the lower side - sometimes very low.

Since the seasons are so compressed up north, you can wind up with virtually all the fish in the same phase on one lake. When they are all post-spawn, the bite can be tough. Recently, I won a tournament under those conditions using a pattern I feel will apply in other parts of the country.

In the creative and diverse world of Asian seafood cuisine, the “IKA” or squid shows up in several unique and diverse forms.  It is a staple in many fresh sushi dishes, and even finds its way onto my plate occasionally as fried calamari.  My wife will tell you that dining with me is not generally an adventure in “palate experimentation”—and she’s right—but that conservative bias does not apply to my search for new and innovative ways to trick the Micropterus species.

Throw-Back Tactics

Throw-back: A term that you have most likely heard in the language of bass fishing.  To be clear, the throw back we are talking about here is not in reference to busting out a vintage Bill Dance mesh back Tennessee Vols cap.

What we are referring to comes in various forms, from follow up to second chance, each carrying the same meaning.  Surely every fisherman who’s ever cast a topwater frog or swimjig through a grass bed has had it happen.  An explosive splash or strike, a hook set, but no bass.

Temperatures have been extremely hot this year leading to hot water. Crappie take refuge wherever possible. There is no one secret way to find and catch fish on all waters, but using a drop-shot rig can help when fish get on open, mid-depth and deep water structures.

Hawk Talk – West Point Lake Battle

I drove the short distance from my house in North Alabama to West Point Lake under a black sky layered   with sheets of falling rain.  I’d been tracking the weather closely leading into practice and realized we’d encounter higher than normal water levels for practice and the tournament.  In fact, West Point’s water level had risen 18 inches in the week leading up to practice.  With changing weather and water conditions I’d need to pay close attention to the clues I’d gather throughout the three day practice period so I could make the best decisions possible in the tournament.
