Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: What to do during Drawdowns
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.

East Cape
Obviously the organizers of the this
week's 'Lord of the Wind' event held at
East Cape have some pretty good weather
intel. It has been basically blowing
most of the week which took care of any
fishing. However, when it ceases the
fishing will come back to the forefront
until the next blow…it goes with the
territory at East Cape this time of
year. Want to know more about the event?
Here is a link.

Magdalena Bay, Baja Mexico

Baja's brand of winter is currently in
full force at Magdalena Bay. Water temps
are in the mid to low sixties, so forget
about exotics unless yellowtail and
grouper qualify as exotics on your list.
Good fishing for them on most of the
banks beginning a few miles outside of
the bocas'.

Inside the corvina are the leaders of
the pack, eating practically anything
put in front of them…also grouper, pargo
and of course more than enough bay bass.

Even the whales are not arriving in the
numbers that are hoped for by the

Zihuatanejo, Mainland Mexico
The fishing for sailfish can only be
described as being way down when
compared to other years in the past.
This is supposed to be our best couple
of weeks of the year, but with two to
three sailfish per boat per day, the
numbers of fish just aren’t here. Is it
that the illegal long lines are finally
taking their toll in Mexico? Or, as most
captains are saying, is it due to a cold
current coming in way early this year? I
am thinking the lack of conservation is
taking its toll, with the captains
closing their eyes, crossing their
fingers, and “hoping” it's the current.
There has just been too steady of a
decline since I moved here 14 years ago,
and the captains have seen it, too.

Along the lines of conservation, I got
an interesting email from Roger Reese.
His observation on future conservation
in the U.S. does have some merit. “In
the U.S. conservation is being taken
care of by the lack of participation.
With the event of the hi-tech X-Boxes,
i-Pods , 3g, 4g, cell texting, (and the
list doesn't stop there), the next
generation has very little interest in
the outdoors or nature. Fishing and
hunting is down by 5 to 7% annually.”…
Roger Reese.

But, lack of participation also means
lack of income for fishing and hunting,
and it is always the sportsman’s dollars
that lead the way for future
While on the Municipal Pier this morning
(Thursday) at 5:30, I was talking to the
captains to get a feel for this fish
report. They were trying to “promote”
me by saying five and six sailfish a day
by, etc. But further questioning, and
also by spending the day on the water
with fly fishing client Brent Schwarz of
Lake Geneva, WI, I came to realize it is
a whole different story. More realistic
it is two sailfish a day, with most of
the fish caught two to four miles
offshore, and using conventional gear.
It is darn tough with the fly rod right

For sure a couple of boats posted fou
and five fish days this week, but
historically we should have a few boats
posting double digit days, with the rest
averaging four to five releases.

Also this morning, Adolfo and Cheva on
the Dos Hermanos boats told me they have
been fishing the inshore all week. They
both told me there are lots of sierras
and green jacks, but the jack crevalle
and roosters are scarce...Ed Kunze

Cabo San Lucas

Let's see, a private ten-boat tournament
for striped marlin and on the first day
only one was caught. And that one was
caught close to home. Tell's the story
of our marlin bite for the week. There
are a few being seen but not many of
them will bite. This has to be the
slowest marlin action I have seen in

There were scattered YFT's. Sometimes
we could find them out past the 1,000
fathom line to the south, other times
just four miles off of the lighthouse on
the Pacific side. The key was to be the
first boat to find the fish, then you
had a chance. If you were not the first
boat then your chances were really
lowered. None of the fish this week
were large fish, the biggest I heard of
was 35 pounds. Most of them were in the
12 to 20 pound class with an occasional
school found that averaged 20 pounds.
Many of the boats were flying tuna flags
for bonito. There were plenty of them
around due to the cooler water. Average
size for them was 4 to 5 pounds with an
occasional school of 15 to 20 pound

Once in a while a dorado in the 10 to 12
pound class was caught, but these
appeared to be stray fish, and were
found close to the beach. There were no
concentrations found this week, not even
under floating debris. Cold water
normally equals slow dorado fishing and
that is what we are seeing now.

Just like last week, as usual this time
of year, lots of wahoo flags are flying
everywhere and people are getting
excited. Then they are educated about
“Mexican Wahoo.” Lots of sierra, but
nothing really big, mostly 2 to 5 lbs.

On one day, off the next, or maybe it
was just a matter of the right place at
the right time, but the sierra bite was
either wide open or non-existent.
Personally, I think the schools were
moving around really fast and if you
could not find them in one spot, you had
to cruise the beach fast in order to
find out where they were. Once you got
into them, limits were easy to get, but
the fish were small at 2 to 5 pounds.
The yellowtail bite was fair, with fish
that are small by northern standards but
decent by ours at an average of 12
pounds. A few grouper and amberjack
rounded up the inshore catch reports
except for an abundance of bonito.…
