This article got me thinking. I’ve been seeing large groups of bait in 40 plus feet deep with fish around, but will skip right over them and go hope to catch something on a point blindly.. I’d say I never fish deeper than 30. What about y’all?

I've fished in 35-45, but never caught anything. I think 32-33 is the deepest I ever caught one, and 30 is the deepest I would fish with any regularity.

During the Open last year on Table Rock I caught a lot in 60-84ft. It's a different lake for sure then what we have around here.

I've caught them deeper than 30 a few times, but 30 is usually my limit.

I don’t personally fish deep but some friends fish for Striper a lot on Texoma at 50+ and often catch the smallies mixed in at that depth.

25 is my limit... unless the sonar is screaming at me


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways with a fishing rod in one hand, 10# LMB in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and yelling "Wow! What a Ride!

I hate fishing deeper than 20'. Catching them in deeper water is the skill I'm working to develop though.


It's only a good cast if you catch a fish...

I have been getting that way over the last couple years. I hate fishing around 10 other boats hitting a line of bushes on the bank. give me an offshore honey pot and a jig!
