Phillip Williams, Tennessee, says, “I’ll be pulling crankbaits. I do some guiding at Sardis and Enid, so this is the last of the prime time to get out in 25 or 30 feet of water and pull crankbaits 12 to 18 feet deep at 1.6 to 1.9 mph.”
David Maddux, Missouri, says, “My home lake is Wappapello. We do a lot of longlining during this time. We use spinner grubs with 40 yards of line out behind the boat. Creek channels in eight to ten feet of water usually produce fish.”
Jeff Riddle, Tennessee, says, “Reelfoot Lake in September means going to the south end of the lake in 11 to 15 feet of water. I use Johnson Fishing Jig tipped with a minno. The technique that works best is uaually moving fast, like 0.6 mph, fishing right over the top of the stumps and logs. When I go to Kentucky Lake I’ll be spider rigging over structure or pulling Johnson crankbaits. The cranks are good because you can cover so much water.”
Keith Mueller says, “Talking Mark Twain Lake, I’ll be in the flats. Specifically, fencerows and that type cover will be good. Going up river often means a good bite. Fish are not aggressive in early September but become more aggressive as the water cools.”
