Ledges are always good potential structures. They don’t have to be in 18 feet of water dropping off to 25. Drops at 8 feet can be great this time of year. Everything is relative to the lake you’re fishing, water clarity, water temperatures and other factors.
Taking time to look with your electronics is very important to better time management. Instead of fishing dead water areas, electronics let you pinpoint the best areas along a ledge to give you a better chance of catching fish. Simple electronics will do the job, but the new imaging units that cover more area per pass are a big time saver.
Fishing a shallow or mid-depth ledge can be done with a variety of methods. The overwhelming percentage of experts picked slow trolling because of multiple baits fished simultaneously.
