Do u have any specific summer time lures i should use? Ive been fishing at lake belton in texas. I just dont know what to use.
In the heat of the day, go with slower presentations in deeper water. I like throwing Texas and Carolina Rigged plastics, jigs, and deep diving crankbaits. If possible, try to find out where some underwater structure and what not is. Drop offs and deep points will be holding fish.
Ok. We r going fishing soon so I am trying to gather information. What should I use early in the morning or late in the eveing?
They ill normally move to shallow water in the early morning and evening hours. Any surface running lure, like a weightless plastic, or top water can get them in nicely. I like using Texas Rigged weightless Zoom Flukes, lipless crankbaits, Spooks, and buzzbaits best. Shallow running crankbaits are good, too.
Do you know what kind of structure I should look for in deep water? Or how I would get better at finding underwater structers?
Really, any kind of structure. Brush, downed trees, points, drop offs, and so on will all be holding fish. The hard part is indeed finding it. Without a boat and depth finder, it can be very difficult, but not impossible. If you don’t have a depth finder, I would recommend throwing something like a Carolina Rig or heavy jig. You can feel the bottom with heavier setups like this, which can really tell you a lot about the bottom. You’ll have to do some searching, but you’ll eventually find structure by doing this. I like to slowly drag a Carolina Rigged plastic along the bottom, while really paying attention to what is going on.
