Hotspot Brought To You By Garmin.
This episode’s Hotspot was a flat area in the mouth of one of Hastie Lakes’ bays.
This is definitely a numbers area where the Smallmouth gather in loose schools.
It’s “normally” over 20 feet deep here so you need to be cognizant of your bait choice.
Steve and Pete used dropshot rigs, Ned rigs, tube jigs, and Pete even threw an extremely deep-diving Hardcore crankbait. They all worked.
The key to flats like this one is, if you’re only catching small fish, move on. The bigger Smallies hang out with similar-sized fish.
Mobility is the key.
DEPTH: 23 Feet
PRESENTATION: Working The Bottom
BAITS: Dropshot, Deep Cranks, Tubes, Ned Rigs
