With my boat in the shop most of the week I had the opportunity to tagalong with a good friend to Headwaters. This impoundment known for giving up giant bass has been a disappointment for the lure fishermen.
Last week’s bite on the lagoon was good, we caught a bunch of trout. We did manage a few smaller snook too. My deeper areas of water gave up some really nice bluefish eating our topwater lures until the tide went slack.
Starting this week will be the beginning of our transitioning time of year. Our first cold front passed through over the weekend and brought us temperatures into the 60’s. Water temperatures on the lagoon were at 79 for me and I’m sure our area lakes are close to that as well.
The river is ALIVE with our Fall bait run at this time of year. There was so much bait on our first spot this past week we couldn’t get a bite on our artificial lures. Once the large pods moved on we started to get bit.
