Pulled into a cove yesterday. We immediately began seeing fish. None were holding tight to specific pieces of structure. Most seemed to be cruising around and holding to specific "areas" but not to a specific spot.
Depth was mainly 10-15' and we could see every rock on the bottom and even make out the greenish color on the fish as they were swimming around.
I was thinking these were mostly pre-spawn fish????
I tossed flukes, lizards, black/blue crawfish at them till I was blue in the face. Tried texas rigged, weightless, and a Carolina rig. Couldn't buy a bite. We probably saw a dozen or so fish that were in the 3-4 lb range and another that was bigger. I'm guessing she was 6-8 lbs.
We left the area for a while and then went back and kept our distance from the areas we had seen them. Figured I needed to make long casts to not spook them. Still no luck.
How would you approach these fish? Or would you leave them altogether?
Gonna try to give them a shot this afternoon. Think I'm going to try drop-shotting some smaller lures and maybe try some swimbaits.
