fishing tips and tricks

 Category:  Freshwater Bass Fishing Tips

Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Lake Gaston'



Lake Gaston is located in both Virginia and North Carolina. It is a large lake of 20,300 acres. Many professional and amateur tournaments are held here each year, so it receives a good deal of fishing pressure. This is where we competed in the Regional Finals for the Red Man Tournament Trail in 2000. The main species of fish in the lake are largemouth bass, striped bass, and black crappie. Other species include some walleye, chain pickerel, white perch, bluegill, and catfish. The main forage base is composed of alewife, gizzard shad, threadfin shad, and herring.



Lake Gaston has relatively stable water levels, and high quality water. There is a good population of largemouth bass, with many large fish available. Most of the bass we catch at Gaston run around 15 inches and about 1 1/2 pounds. We have caught numerous 5 and 6 pounders and some larger fish were caught in the finals. In fact, some of these fish were 8 or 9 pounds. The lake record is 14 pounds 2 ounces, so there are plenty of big bass left in Lake Gaston. Gaston's striped bass fishery depends mainly on stocking. Many striped bass are caught each year that weigh 3 to 8 pounds, but plenty of 20 pounders are taken each year. The walleyes are doing good at Gaston also and many trophy fish of 8, 9 , & 10 pounds are caught.













The striped bass make a spawning run each year up to the Roanoke river in April and May. Lake Gaston has a variety of structure also, such as submerged bridges, stumps, submerged roads, and lots of grass in the summer. Most of the water flowing into Lake Gaston comes from the Roanoke river. The visibility in the lake usually ranges from 4-8 feet, although heavy rains can make it muddy. There is a thermocline in Gaston in the summer at about 20-25 feet. In the summer, oxygen levels are low are far down as Great Creek. The bottom is sand and gravel with some flats covered in silt, and clay hillsides. The shoreline is mostly wooded, with some high slopes. North Carolina Power and Virginia Power owns the entire 350 mile shoreline. There are lots of docks, rip rapped banks, and brushpiles. there are really a lot weeds, including elodea, milfoil, and hydrilla. This is especially true in the creek arms and coves, with the deep weedline at about 10 feet. They do treat the grass and also have added some grass carps.






The best locations for largemouth bass in the spring (March & April), are the northside creeks, especially Pea Hill and Lizard. They normally turn on first as soon as the water temperature reaches about 50 degrees. The next places that turn on is the southside arms, especially Lees and Poe. We like to fish these areas around the boathouses, rip rap, and laydowns with a chrome / blue rattlin Rapala and a Colorado spinnerbait. We stick to the structure that is in the 5-10 foot deep water. Bass here start to spawn around April 15th, and last till around June. The other areas that can be real productive are Pea Hill and Six-Pound Creeks. Sometimes we use floating worms, and wacky-rig them for some hot action. Another method that works good in these areas is soft plastic jerkbaits. During the tournament, and at other times also, we really caught most of the better fish on these baits. Fin-S-Shads were our top producers. Lake Gaston is known for a good topwater bite. You can really get into some decent bass in these areas on buzzbaits and poppers also. Even Zara Spooks produce well at times.

Later in the year, about June, the largemouth like to relate to classic bottom structure like humps, points, and stream channels, or even large beds of hydrilla. These hydrilla beds produce large bass as well as numbers until about September. We usually probe the deep weedline with a Texas-rigged worm or Yamamoto grub. The 'SENKO's' also produce well here. Usually in the mornings and at dark, we twitch jerkbaits over the top of the hydrilla, or even throw buzzbaits.

If you like to fish structure, then the main lake points at creek mouths like Pretty Creek are good. Another good spot that has bass on humps and drop offs is Hubquarter and Lyons Creeks. The 15-20 foot deep area are best, as that is where most of the baitfish are. Carolina rigged lizards are a good choice, as are for worms, 'SENKO's' and grubs. At times, we catch good fish here on deeper crankbaits as well. The water starts to cool off a lot in October and November, and the bass start moving back to the 5-10 foot deep water. The best areas at this time are Jimmie's, Lizard, and Six-Pound Creeks. We use a 3/8 to 1/2 ounce jig at this time, with a black/blue or brown/orange 'Uncle Josh Pork trailer'.






We like to carry several spinning rods for the lighter lures, in different lengths, from 6-61/2 feet, with a medium action, in a good graphite rod such as a G Loomis. We like Shimano reels, spooled with a 8-10 pound Stren. For baitcasters, we carry a variety of rods, in 6 1/2 to 7 foot lengths, in a medium/hvy action, and a crankbait rod, in 7 foot. We use Lew's and G Loomis rods, and Shimano Chronarch reels on most outfits, with 17-20 pound test Stren.

San Jose del Cabo

November 30, 2014



Vacationers were arriving in Los Cabos by good numbers for the Thanksgiving
Holiday week. Warm sunshine likely attracting people, as very frigid winery
conditions are now sweeping across much of the United States. Locally the
early mornings have been cooler, but as the soon rises the days have warmed
up quickly, with high temperatures now about 85 degrees.



Ocean water temperature has remained 80 degrees throughout the region. This
week we felt the first really strong north winds, Tuesday the gusty
conditions started and lasted for three days. These conditions limited
options for anglers and created murkier inshore water conditions. The winds
have settled down now and forecasts look favorable for the weekend.



Schools of sardinas are being found along beach stretches near Red Hill and
towards Chileno. This has been the bait of choice for the all-around action
now being found. Tougher ocean conditions contributed to more limited
fishing action. Yellowfin tuna were found in schools close to shore, from
Santa Marina to Punta Gorda and La Fortuna, mixed with skipjack, coming up
to the live sardinas, striking best on lighter line. No big numbers though,
the yellowfin were finicky at times, readily coming up for the chum, but
not wanting to strike the baiting hooks.



Dorado were scattered in smaller sized schools, the majority of these fish
were smaller in size, but some dorado up to 20 pounds were accounted for.
Wahoo remain in the area and should be around for a while, with the water
temperatures still holding at 80 degrees. Though the wahoo have proved more
elusive for the past couple of weeks now, these fish are being encountered
on the same grounds as are the tuna and dorado, ranging in sizes up to 40
pounds, striking on bait, yo-yo jigs and at times on Rapalas. Trolling with
skipjack, ballyhoo, chihuil and sardina have been the various baitfish
options.



We have started to see more structure species in the mix, such as
amberjack, pargo, cabrilla and pompano, calmer weather is more suited for
targeting these species. Sierra are moving in along the shoreline now in
greater numbers and the seasonís first whale migration are starting to
arrive to their Southern Baja feeding and calving grounds.



Billfish action has been limited, the striped marlin schools are still on
the Pacific grounds to the north, at least one 350 lb. class black marlin
was reportedly caught and released early in the week from the Outer Gordo
Bank area, this was on a private boat launching out of Puerto Los Cabos.



The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos
Marina sent out approximately 135 charters for the week, with anglers
reporting a fish count of:

15 wahoo, 155 yellowfin tuna, 84 dorado, 20 bonito, 180 skipjack, 15
cabrilla, 14 amberjack, 16 pompano, 68 sierra, 12 jack crevalle, 28 pargo,
2 yellowtail and 5 dogtooth snapper.



Good fishing, Eric
