February and March 2014

Black & Blue or Black & Red 7/16 oz Southpaw Jig in tipped with a Craw in matching colors or a Texas rigged craw worm in black blue will be a good bet. Fish the jig combinations or Texas rig along the edges of the flats early, about 3 to 5 feet of water. As the sun warms the water in the middle of the day or if we have several days of warm weather, move up on the flats and slow roll a white and chartreuse spinnerbait around the stumps and lay down logs. If the spinnerbait does not produce, try a weightless Texas rigged watermelon red Senko type bait. The best depths are going to be from the banks to about 5 feet of water. The 100 series Chartreuse-blue back and crawfish colored Bandit crankbaits fished in and around the stumps on the flats and along the edges of the flats. Preferred gear for the jig or Texas rig is a 7 foot medium heavy graphite rod, 6.3 to 1 ratio bait cast reel spooled with Vicious 17lb. fluorocarbon line. For the crankbaits a medium action graphite rod with the same reel but spooled with 15lb Vicious mono line.


Shiners and small crappie jigs tipped with shiners fished along the edge of the ridges in the oxbows should be a good bet on the Crappie. Four to seven feet of water with standing timber should be a good place to start.


Bream~ No report.
