These calm sunny days are the best type of day to pull out on the flat points around the main lake and try your hand at drop shotting . I would start fishing in the 28 ft range near the bottom . then move out deeper until you find the fish on your graph . One thing about drop shot fishing is that you can see the fish and if there not feeding it can make it frustrating trying to get them to bite .
Here’s a tip for those finicky fish in deep water . When the fish come up to look at your bait but then turn and go back to the bottom try this . The next time you see them on there way up to the bait reel it up a few feet just before the fish gets to it and this will trigger a reaction from the fish to grab the bait . My bait of choice is a 4 in chompers plum drop shot worm .
