Thread: Bait?

  1. #1

    Default Bait?

    So planning to hit the water for a long weekend. Last few outings have had trouble finding bait pre-dawn under lights. Anyone willing to share what/where seems to be working recently? Hate getting up that early then having to fish artificials anyway because we were in the wrong part of the lake.

    Is 208 producing, or is bait uplake? Bridges or bays? Thanks!!!

    The bridge at Hunters Landing had bait during 4th of July week.

    Thanks! Heard about hunters, hope they’re still there! Was the pigeon run bait during the morning/day/evening? Herring or shad?

    Was herring in the morning a week ago. Was on lake this morning.........pods of bait around Stubbs. Scattered stripers from Rose Valley up to Terry's Run. Caught 2 keepers on lures.

    Thx for the help! Found loads of herring at hunters both sat and sun mornings. Had lots of trouble finding fish though. Took 20-30 short bites and 1 keeper over both days. Keeper from big ben flats. Fished from contrary creek to rose valley and up to dillards. Fished from 10-45 feet... no discernable pattern. Anyone else have any luck after the deep cool down?

    Which flat is Big Ben Flats? Know I've probably fished it, but did not know the name.

    Big Ben is just inside the split of the North Anna arm.
