Bait Fish

Post By: ratdog      Posted: 8/19/2019 4:49:22 PM     Points: 149    
Fished from 6am tell 11am without a bite. There where so many 1 inch bait fish everywhere that the fish could eat without any work. The water surface looked like it was rainy from the fish coming up. My fish finder showed clouds of bait fish. Yet I only saw one small and short boil.

At least be happy knowing all the fish are fat, happy, and getting bigger. Will be all the better when the shad die off happens and the fish are hungry again.

Ajax - about when will that be do you think? Fished boyd twice and got skunked both times. Its close to home but the fishing isnt worth it right now.

The boils at boyd are usually better in the evenings if no storms and minimal recreational boats.

Hopefully... right after hunting season hahaha

I really couldn’t give you a window of time. But I can tell you from years when I fished this timeframe more. If you put your time in out there, you will figure them out and be rewarded. But it will take many hours and days to do
