Ok it’s a little cold outside. The fish may be a little sluggish but they will get hungry and if you are home in your nice warm house they will eat without you.
Fresh water folks, it’s fall crappie season. The crappie are hitting on minnows, jigs and soft plastics. The bass are good on deep diving crank baits, finesse baits, and spinner baits with Colorado blades. The bream are hitting on nightcrawlers and crickets. The catfish are loading up for winter, so stink baits, chicken livers and minnows are your best bet, along with cut baits.
Saltwater fishing is really good for speckled trout on mirror lures, gulp, and mud minnows. The drum are hitting on everything. But the real winner in yucky weather are the striped bass. They have many names. Stripers, Rock fish and the I don’t see any game warden fish. Best baits are plastic flukes, soft plastics, minnows, and jerk baits. They are big and yummy. Check your local waters for regulations and creel limits.
Good fishing. (Go ahead and stay home if you want I’ll catch your fish for you…….signed, the Captain.)
