By Steve VonBrandt


One of the biggest obstacles an angler can face is finding, and then catching, fish in Big Lakes or Reservoirs where the water levels fluctuate dramatically, such as in Spruce Run, in New Jersey, in the recent past. Many lakes or Reservoirs, can rise or fall as much as 10 feet. This happened to us at a tournament in Bull Schoals, MO, a few years ago.

There are many factors that cause these fluctuations. Bodies of water that are dammed by hydroelectric plants, have upsurges of power in the extremely hot or cold periods of weather, that cause them to run more turbines and the level of the water drops. Sometimes it is a drought, and even the smaller bodies of water here in the Northeast get drastically low at times. On some lakes, in the East, they lower the water levels for irrigation, to build new launching ramps, to try to control weed growth, and to keep the ice from cracking their docks in the winter. Changing water levels can put even the best angler to the test.

Some other reasons they lower the water levels are due to an effort to try to restore the sportfishing to some lakes or Reservoirs that have suffered a decline, due to poor water quality. This happens a lot when the bottom of the lake, which is usually rock or mud, accumulate to the point of oversaturation along the shoreline, and the vegetation gets too dense. This can be from excess phosphorus, nitrogen, and other things from chemical sewage treatment plants. These drawdowns kills off the excess vegetation. I fished lakes in Florida, Missouri, and right here in Delaware, such as Diamond in Milford, and Hearns in Seaford. Becks Pond also is drawn sometimes, along with other Delaware, New Jersey, and Maryland waters.


'What To Do'

If the drawdown happens quickly, the bass, and the minnows they feed on, will head to deeper water. Look for the deepwater points, any offshore humps, creekbeds, stump fields, submerged islands, and docks the go out into deeper water.

Since small baitfish and Crawfish are the main diet of bass almost anywhere, the lure and color choices you make should reflect that. Whether it's lipped or lipless crankbaits, blade baits, crankbaits, jigs, flukes, or Jerkbaits, they should match the forage in the lake or Reservoir. I like to use G. Loomis rods, and Shimano reels, in spinning, and baitcasting models, in 6 1/2 to 7 foot lengths, with 10-14 pound line.


'Develop A Pattern'

The bass are going to be on the move in these low water periods, so you have to be versatile. Vary your retrieves, working the edges of points and humps from shallow to deep. If the banks are gravely, or sloping type banks, then we generally use a jig, and other crawfish type baits. I like to cast to the banks, and stairstep the lure down. This has worked well for me in many New Jersey, and Missouri Reservoirs and Lakes. Keep your eyes open for old duckblinds,and docks that border deep water. They will block the sunlight, and provide good ambush points. After a big drawdown, we take our cameras to the lake and take plenty of pictures. This can really help later, and teach you what certain features look like on the fish locator, since you will have seen it first hand. During the drawdown at Diamond and in Red Mill Pond, we took plenty of photos to compare later.

We found offshore humps in many places, which were a bonanza at many times after the water was raised. Drop shot rigs, with a spider grub, Senko, or small worm, worked on the drop-offs in these areas in productive also. Keep your eyes open for any moving water by points when a fast drawdown occurs. Cast downcurrent and work the deeper running crankbaits from top to bottom. I like to use a Carolina rigged bait during these times, in these areas also. Marking the humps, points, and other visible structures on a GPS is a great idea. Combined with first hand knowledge, photos, a map, and GPS points, you can win a tournament or just increase your weekend fishing fun.

Click here to enlarge Report Description: February Fishing Report

February is the busiest month in the marina at Los Suenos and the fishing has been very good with some great Sailfish numbers. The one week of rain we had slowed the bite for a few days and pushed the blue water and the bite out past 40 miles. After the full moon the boats that fished out past 40 were rewarded with some great days.

Captain Bill on the “Sailfish” was on a roll the last week of February averaging 12 Sailfish and 3 Dorado (40 pounds) per day.

John Jackson and some friends went out on the “Ashley Nicole” with Captain Dean and had a really good day. They caught 4 Sailfish, a Mahi Mahi for dinner, a striped Marlin and John got his first ever “Blue Marlin”…congrats John.

Mark and his group went out on the “Barbarrosa” and caught 8 Sailfish, 3 Dorado and one Striped Marlin.

Captain Jeremy on the “R&J” caught a 70 pound Broom tail Grouper.

Captain Glenn on the “Bethina” took a group from Minnesota 55 miles out and was rewarded by raising 30 Sailfish and Marlin.

Captain Kevin on the “Hot Reels” had a good day going 4 for 8 on Sailfish. They also caught 2 nice Dorado and a 300 plus pound Blue Marlin.

Captain Dave on the “MissBehavin” took a group a guys from Philly out to corner and had a great day going 8 for 11 on Sailfish and they caught one nice Mahi Mahi for the grill.

Captain Dana on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” went 7 for 10 on Sails in the same area…they also raised a 300 pound Blue Marlin.

Randy and his wife from Florida went out on the “Scorpion” and caught 2 Sailfish, raised a 300 plus pound Marlin and caught a 50 plus pound Bull Mahi Mahi. That’s their biggest Mahi ever so they are having a mount made.

Captain RJ on the “Predator” fished offshore and caught 6 Sailfish, 4 Dorado and a big Striped Marlin.

March Fish Forecast --

Hopefully the big Sailfish numbers will continue in March. The second leg of the Los Suenos Billfish Series is this month and some big Sailfish and Marlin numbers would be a wonderful thing.

The Marlin fishing will be consistent with the occasional Blue and Black being caught. The Striped Marlin bite was above average in February…look for that to continue.

There will also be lots of big Dorado and Tuna caught by boats going offshore for Sailfish and Marlin.


March Fish of the Month – Marlin

The second leg of the Los Suenos Signature Billfish Tournament is March 12th – 15th. More than 50 boats are expected to compete for over $200,000 in prizes.

Captain Marvin and the crew of “The Bite” won the first event in January by releasing 6 Striped Marlin and 22 Sailfish. With the Maverick boats finishing 1st,2nd and 3rd in that tourney expect one of those boats to be the favorite for the second go round.

The bite has been good so I’ll guess the winning boat will release 50 plus Sailfish and a half dozen Marlin in the 3 day event. Sailfish are worth 100 points and any Marlin is worth 500 points. All fish are released.

Stop by bubba’s and listen to the “live” fish reports on the VHF radio.

Good Luck and Good Fishing,

bubba
