Tips for fishing in freshwater locations:

  • When fishing in freshwater lakes, there are seven exceptional spots to look for. The seven most productive lake spots are: near shorelines - lily pads & weed beds, near dead logs, under docks or bridges, in deep lake water, under overhanging frees or bushes, the shelter of a rocky shore, and near a mouth of an outlet stream.

  • Check out your local river or lake when it's very low and see what you find. Fish like to hide in holes and they are easier to spot when the water is lower. That will give you some fishing spots all year round.

  • Replace ordinary gray treble hooks with red when fishing for most freshwater species, but especially for walleye. The red hooks resemble blood, and therefore is percieved by the fish as wounded prey.

  • In clear water try to find submerged wood. Old rotted docks are great producers. These area often hold lots of dig perch, rock bass, gill, and smaller bass. Just cast small, weightless worms over the stucture, of along the bottom nearbye.

  • When the fish aren't working with you, before you call it a day, try something different. Try lures that you wouldn't normally use. Such as big rattlin' crankbaits, giant worms, big 3 or 4 bladed spinnerbaits, etc. And try to present them in different ways every cast before you give up.

  • To catch a variety of species including bluegills, perch, crappie, and even small largemouths, try hooking on a live worm and fishing it off the bottom. Use a split shot or two. Throw it out there, sit back, and watch the line for hits.

  • A Mepp's  spinner is a  consistent fish producer.  You can catch everything from bass to catfish on them. It requires no action...simply cast and reel.
