    BASS
    I've caught several bass lately slowly cranking a Strike King Series 3 crank bait. The best Strike King Series 3 colors have been natural colors with bright accents. Small grubs also work well right now. I have also been Carolina rigging along the banks and that has been pretty productive as well. Not every trip boats a big smallmouth but now is the time to try to catch a trophy smallmouth bass, a good day will produce one or more over four pounds.

    White bass
    White bass continue to bite. I have caught them mostly on grubs and small crank baits while bass fishing. Some banks will just have more white bass than large mouths and small mouths, these banks tend to be gravel banks and sandy banks.

    Stripers
    Stripers remain tough. I do not expect to catch a large number of stripers right now but they will start biting real soon. I do not start striper fishing until mid to late March.

    Sauger
    Sauger have been really slow the last few weeks. I starting catching them on bass fishing baits in late October and I still catch several on crank baits and spoons while bass fishing. Right now sauger jigs are accounting for most the sauger being caught. Dark jigs seem to be working best, such as dark brown, dark red and orange. A lot of people are tipping the jigs with minnows but I have yet to use live baits at this point, I prefer plastic minnows. 35’ has been a good depth but do not let that move you out of a deeper area if you are catching fish there, I often check deeper depths and more shallow depths to check to see if they are more productive.

    Crank Bait Cadence

    As we approach some post spawn fishing there is probably no bait more fun to fish than a crank bait; key though is making the bait attractable to the fish and that may take some thought. I know many of us throw the crank bait out and reel it back; there’s more to it than that... read more
