I had a blast on the water today with Ryan. We caught a lot of smallmouth bass in the am before the wind got really bad. We even had multiple times that both of us were hooked up at the same time. That is one of the really cool things about being a Vermont Fishing Guide, seeing your clients catching fish all day. At one pm the wind got really bad, so we decided to fish the coves that were protected from the wind. We still picked up some more fish, but not as much as in the am. The new Skeeter boat I got did great in rough waters and am glad for the new boat.
Here are some tips for fishing the coves:
- The first thing you need to do is take an assessment of the available cover that’s there. Note lily pads, cattails, standing timber, milfoil and rocky banks.
- Once you get a good assessment of the shoreline, now take a look at the bottom and get a feel for how the bottom of the lake looks in your spot.
- Take a look for creeks, rivers, channels, drop-offs and underwater humps in your area.
- In the spring bass fish will migrate towards bait fish and often migrate towards shallow waters to get ready for spawning.
Good luck fishing, Keith
