October’s coolness is cooling down the water at East Fork Lake. Surface temp has dropped down to the mid 60’s and everything should be getting right. Stripers are on the flats gorging themselves on Shad. Chad and Dad are catching a few Hybrid Striper…but no Bass reports.
The water is clear and getting colder. The Lake level is going down to Winter Pool. Hybrid Striper are eating a few of our crankbaits. Shad everywhere.
Daylight in the evening is becoming precious after work. We get in about two hours of evening fishing…at the most. Bass aren’t getting on the hook lately so Chad and Dad are settling for what they can catch. Hybrid Striper break the monotony of not catching anything. Chad and Dad caught several 15″ fish last night. No big ones but we did have a little action which does beat a blank.
I’ll keep you updated on East Fork Lake. Remember Hybrid Striper love mud flats at times. Hybrids don’t always have to “break” either.
P.S. …Sauger time on the Ohio River at Meldahl is coming on fast. Water temp 65 degrees. The Bass are hitting great at present but that could change. Chad and Dad will take Bass fishing over all other fishing as long as Bass cooperate. When Bass quit biting we shift to Winter Sauger. Love it!
