Summer Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: Same requirements as spring, but deeper. For beginners, rivers and creeks are the best because "deep" is relative. In a creek, a crappie's summer spot might only be 5 feet from their springtime spot, because there isn't as much deep water to begin with, so bank bound anglers can usually catch crappies in basically the same places they caught them in the spring. In lakes, summer usually means having a fishfinder, or sonar unit, and looking for those "sticking up things" in deeper water. However, there are a couple ways to find those spots even if you don't have a fishfinder. One is a Kentucky rig, which is a live bait rig with a very heavy weight on the bottom that will allow you to feel it when you drag it through a brushpile. The other is, plant your own brushpiles so you'll know where they are. Still, in the summer, a beginners best bet is a shallow creek or river with good bank access.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
