Line Sides: Good!
The water temperature has been dropping fast with the recent Arctic blast and the fishing has slowed down some because of it. Once the weather stabilizes, so will the fishing.
The fish are still stacking up on the flats and points from Bartow Carver north to Little River. Our best bite has been fishing big threadfin, small gizzard shad and small trout just off the bottom on the flats on most main-lake points early and then again right before the sun goes down. The flats at Galts, Harbor Town and the Delta have been producing best for us.
The bigger stripers have moved back into the main lake and are already starting to move into the mid lake creeks. Flat lines and planer boards fished with large gizzard shad or trout will be your best bet for big fish. If you are after numbers, large threadfins and small gizzard shad will work best.
November is one of the best months of the year for spooning. I normally have my best luck on a 1/2-oz. white Flex-it spoon fished right off the bottom. The summer boat traffic is over, and with deer season being in full swing, not too many people are on the lakes. It’s just a peaceful time of the year to wet a line.
