|Reel set up with lead core|
This is a great time to use your fish finder. Your fish finder will not only show you were the fish are, but it will also give you information about how deep the water is and what the bottom looks like. You will be able to see if the bottom depth is constant, or moving. You will also be able to see if the bottom is smooth, or if there are rocks or other structure.
Out On The Water
You can use a similar method almost anywhere in the lake. While fishing at Taylor Park Reservoir I was able to use the fish finder to locate a school of fish suspended 25-30 feet. They were suspended over the old river bed, with a total depth between 40-60 feet. I let out about five colors and everytime I went through the school I got a bite. I wasn't able to bring every one to the boat, but it was exciting hooking a fish each time we went through that spot. Without a fish finder to locate the fish and a way to get the lure down to the fish, we would have missed every one of those.
Hopefully you can use this series of posts to get your own lead core line set up and start catching fish! Good luck and let me know how it goes in the comment section below.
