NEVER CATCH

Post By: BILL63      Posted: 8/3/2020 1:46:04 PM     Points: 0    
I live right around the corner for AR. I never catch anything but small trout.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

Locate some good structure, sunken trees, lay downs, maybe throw bigger baits, and slow down a bit.. itís been hot, Bass get lethargic in the heat, they donít like to work very hard for their next meal..

What have you been doing that hasn't worked? When have you been fishing? Where at the Res have you been fishing? What sort of baits and techniques are you using? Not trying to be snarky just that you aren't giving us much to work with in your post.

Get off the shore and on to a boat . . .I fish at Aurora at least two or three times a week from a boat.What you doing tomorrow? I'm going out in the boat and your welcome to tag along.

up till 10.
There are a lot of stocker trout in Aurora and shore fishermen catch plenty of them,but some stick around a year or two and grow a bit bigger,but they run in the main lake and you just don't see shore fishermen catch them.Walleye are mostly main lake and I never hear about them being caught from shore. Last but not least are the perch . . . .find them through the ice and have a blast trying to follow them as they roam around . . .summer time . . .find them if you can(hint:never close to shore)

Not everyone can afford a boat if possible you may consider a float tube (belly boat) or a kayak. If stranded on shore try moving around. In the summer Aurora is a difficult place to fish most fish move to the cooler deeper water. Still by moving around the lake and changing tactics may help. A pair of chest waders will at least help you to cast further out by wading out deeper. This summer I've seen fishermen in their swimming trunks wading chest deep to cast further from shore ALWAYS use caution when wading. Power bait for trout, a fly and a bubble for trout, crawlers for perch, trout and walleye. In the spring and fall try a blade bait for trout and walleye. Fish the weeds for perch, trout and walleye, try the points purchase a map at BPS of Aurora and look for those place that you think fish will hang our. Get creative and good luck

Thanks HP for the FXR website tip. I look forward to filling an open seat in the near future. To the guy looking to catch fish, hook up (pun intended) with HP he goes catching not fishing.

I can vouch for going out "catching" with HP. He honestly has forgotten more about Aurora Res than I will hope to learn. Fair warning though once you get on some good walleye with him those trout just never seem to "hit" the same. Tight lines and good luck. Although HP will tell you it's not about luck....
