This morning I did some scouting on Stillhouse in advance of a trip tomorrow morning.
The fish are deep and slow, and so the tactics must also go deep and slow.
Today’s fishing took place entirely over 45 feet deep and although the fish bit consistently, the tactics required were very slow and deliberate.
I found the fish bunched up heavily today, but, despite the numbers of fish present, most were simply in suspended animation with just a low percentage of the overall population willing to feed.
I boated 25 fish, including 21 white bass, 1 just legal largemouth, 2 drum, and 1 crappie. Every fish caught came on either a 3/8 or 3/4 oz. TNT 180 slab.
TALLY = 25 FISH, all caught and released
