Tip of the Month: Think Deep and Slow 

by Mike Sheppard

In December, the fish will be in the mouths of the creeks. Water temperatures in November here on Kentucky Lake but in December they’ll be cooler. Different parts of the country will cool at different times. But when it does, the fish will head back to the ledges and creeks headed ot to deeper water.

Minnow and jigs both work. A double-hook rig is a good choice because fish are feeding up for the winter and are aggressive. They are schooling back together.

It’s important to go slow. Slowing down will usually get you more bites and catch more fish.”
