Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: What to do during Drawdowns
By Steve VonBrandt

One of the biggest obstacles an angler can face is finding, and then catching, fish in Big Lakes or Reservoirs where the water levels fluctuate dramatically, such as in Spruce Run, in New Jersey, in the recent past. Many lakes or Reservoirs, can rise or fall as much as 10 feet. This happened to us at a tournament in Bull Schoals, MO, a few years ago.

There are many factors that cause these fluctuations. Bodies of water that are dammed by hydroelectric plants, have upsurges of power in the extremely hot or cold periods of weather, that cause them to run more turbines and the level of the water drops. Sometimes it is a drought, and even the smaller bodies of water here in the Northeast get drastically low at times. On some lakes, in the East, they lower the water levels for irrigation, to build new launching ramps, to try to control weed growth, and to keep the ice from cracking their docks in the winter. Changing water levels can put even the best angler to the test.

Some other reasons they lower the water levels are due to an effort to try to restore the sportfishing to some lakes or Reservoirs that have suffered a decline, due to poor water quality. This happens a lot when the bottom of the lake, which is usually rock or mud, accumulate to the point of oversaturation along the shoreline, and the vegetation gets too dense. This can be from excess phosphorus, nitrogen, and other things from chemical sewage treatment plants. These drawdowns kills off the excess vegetation. I fished lakes in Florida, Missouri, and right here in Delaware, such as Diamond in Milford, and Hearns in Seaford. Becks Pond also is drawn sometimes, along with other Delaware, New Jersey, and Maryland waters.

'What To Do'

If the drawdown happens quickly, the bass, and the minnows they feed on, will head to deeper water. Look for the deepwater points, any offshore humps, creekbeds, stump fields, submerged islands, and docks the go out into deeper water.

Since small baitfish and Crawfish are the main diet of bass almost anywhere, the lure and color choices you make should reflect that. Whether it's lipped or lipless crankbaits, blade baits, crankbaits, jigs, flukes, or Jerkbaits, they should match the forage in the lake or Reservoir. I like to use G. Loomis rods, and Shimano reels, in spinning, and baitcasting models, in 6 1/2 to 7 foot lengths, with 10-14 pound line.

'Develop A Pattern'

The bass are going to be on the move in these low water periods, so you have to be versatile. Vary your retrieves, working the edges of points and humps from shallow to deep. If the banks are gravely, or sloping type banks, then we generally use a jig, and other crawfish type baits. I like to cast to the banks, and stairstep the lure down. This has worked well for me in many New Jersey, and Missouri Reservoirs and Lakes. Keep your eyes open for old duckblinds,and docks that border deep water. They will block the sunlight, and provide good ambush points. After a big drawdown, we take our cameras to the lake and take plenty of pictures. This can really help later, and teach you what certain features look like on the fish locator, since you will have seen it first hand. During the drawdown at Diamond and in Red Mill Pond, we took plenty of photos to compare later.

We found offshore humps in many places, which were a bonanza at many times after the water was raised. Drop shot rigs, with a spider grub, Senko, or small worm, worked on the drop-offs in these areas in productive also. Keep your eyes open for any moving water by points when a fast drawdown occurs. Cast downcurrent and work the deeper running crankbaits from top to bottom. I like to use a Carolina rigged bait during these times, in these areas also. Marking the humps, points, and other visible structures on a GPS is a great idea. Combined with first hand knowledge, photos, a map, and GPS points, you can win a tournament or just increase your weekend fishing fun.

Cabo Fish Report
March 26 to April 1, 2007

WEATHER: This weeks weather was a great prelude to summer as the winds were light, the sun was out and our daytime temperatures were in the mid 80s. Of course things are going to warm up, but what a great introduction! Nighttime lows were in the high 60s and the light winds we had were mostly from the east and northeast, a bit unusual but welcome as it made water conditions on the Pacific very nice.
WATER: The Pacific side had a bit of a swell at the beginning of the week with some sets reaching 6 feet, but they were spread apart so it was not too bad. I was able to run to the San Jaime bank in the 58 at 20 knots without pounding and after you got outside the current line it mellowed out. The Pacific side was 69-71 degrees with a band of warm water running from the coast out to the San Jaime Bank and it looked like a hook running from there to the south, tapering smaller as it bent to the southeast. To the west of this warm band the water averaged 68 degrees. On the Cortez side of the Cape things were warmer as the water from the Cape and up to the Punta Gorda area, and out to a distance of 30 miles was a fairly consistent 71 degrees. To the southeast of the Cape there was an area of cooler, greener water from the 95 Spot and extending south 30 miles and east-west 15 miles.
BAIT: We had a good mix of live bait available this week with Mullet, Caballito and Mackerel all readily available at the normal $2 per bait. There were very few Sardinas and they were $25 a scoop from a few boats up at San Jose.

BILLFISH: There was no change in the location of the Striped Marlin from last week as they were still holding on the San Jaime Bank on the Pacific side and around the Punta Gorda and Gorda Banks area on the Cortez side. Most of the boats were fishing the San Jaime Bank as it was a shorter run to the fish and there were massive amounts of bait in the area. Trolling lures and drifting live baits both accounted for fish and often there were multiple hook-ups. Boats were averaging two to three Marlin per trip and some of them were decent size fish. I had one release this week on a Striped Marlin of about #180. It was surprising considering how much bait was in the area, but the fish were fairly aggressive when attacking the lures. There were a few Blue Marlin reported from the Punta Gorda area and I did hear of one Blue caught just on the inside of the San Jaime this week. There should be more Blues as well as a few Blacks showing up as the water warms.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: Tuna fishing was slow this week but at least we were seeing some of them. At the San Jaime Bank fish from 50 to 80 pounds would pop up every now and then causing a lot of commotion, but no one as far as I heard had any luck getting them to bite. Guys were trying drifting live baits at 300 feet, chunking for them and yo-yoing as well with no luck. In the San Jose area there were smaller fish to 25 pounds reported but the only guys having any luck on them were the ones using Sardinas on #20 flouro-carbon leaders.
DORADO: No change from last week as the lucky boats were catching one fish a day but they were good size, in the 30-40 pound class. There was no concentration of fish and they were scattered.
WAHOO: I did not hear of any Wahoo this week.
INSHORE: Even the inshore fishing was spotty this week. There was some Sierra, a few Yellowtail and a scattering of bottom fish, but no great catches to be had.
NOTES: This makes three weeks in a row with very little change in the fishing. Hopefully things pick up soon! The bright spot for the week was having the Striped Marlin bite turn on and the water being in great condition at the same time. Until next week, tight lines!
