October Hybrid Stripers at East Fork Lake

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!

      Good to hear from you Rick. The Water is cooling down at the Ohio River fast. It’s now under 60. Sauger will start biting extensively. Chad and I have been catching a few on the points and then Meldahl starts happening from here on out. We use the jigging spoon, blade-bait, jig and minnow, and just a plain minnow on the bottom. It’s “on” now and continues as long as the River permits. Clear water is best…but the temp never gets to cold. Prime water is between 60 to 45…Sauger can be finicky but they catchable now through December.
