What to look for?

5 posts in this topic

What do you guys look for when your on the lake for a fishing spot?

Like weeds, structure, or depths?

Thanks,

PK

Yes to all 3, then look for fish on the graph.

Depth is the key, and where the work comes in.

Then it is finding out what they will chase.

Here in southern mn, weeds seem to be best early ice then. Later I seem to find them crusing sand and mud bottom areas. There isn't much for depth around here, but I seem to find them in 6 to 12 feet of water. Well that is if the lake is that deep some lakes around here are only 5 ft deep.

easy question... like most will say on here transition lines provide a great place to start lookking for fish. this can be sediment transitions or very deliberate depth transitions. Depending on the lake such as a soup bowl type lake look for what stands out such as a random clump of weeds or a sunken log. easiest to see and find with an underwater camera but if your skills with your vexi are keen enough you will be able to find these spots as well.

Depends on species and time of year.

1st Ice I usually start off where I ended the fall season catching fish.

Thats the time to get your GPS out and mark those spots for winter.
