fishing tips and tricks

 Category:  Freshwater Bass Fishing Tips
 Author Name:  Steve vonBrandt/S&K Guide Service

Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Lake Gaston'



Lake Gaston is located in both Virginia and North Carolina. It is a large lake of 20,300 acres. Many professional and amateur tournaments are held here each year, so it receives a good deal of fishing pressure. This is where we competed in the Regional Finals for the Red Man Tournament Trail in 2000. The main species of fish in the lake are largemouth bass, striped bass, and black crappie. Other species include some walleye, chain pickerel, white perch, bluegill, and catfish. The main forage base is composed of alewife, gizzard shad, threadfin shad, and herring.



Lake Gaston has relatively stable water levels, and high quality water. There is a good population of largemouth bass, with many large fish available. Most of the bass we catch at Gaston run around 15 inches and about 1 1/2 pounds. We have caught numerous 5 and 6 pounders and some larger fish were caught in the finals. In fact, some of these fish were 8 or 9 pounds. The lake record is 14 pounds 2 ounces, so there are plenty of big bass left in Lake Gaston. Gaston's striped bass fishery depends mainly on stocking. Many striped bass are caught each year that weigh 3 to 8 pounds, but plenty of 20 pounders are taken each year. The walleyes are doing good at Gaston also and many trophy fish of 8, 9 , & 10 pounds are caught.













The striped bass make a spawning run each year up to the Roanoke river in April and May. Lake Gaston has a variety of structure also, such as submerged bridges, stumps, submerged roads, and lots of grass in the summer. Most of the water flowing into Lake Gaston comes from the Roanoke river. The visibility in the lake usually ranges from 4-8 feet, although heavy rains can make it muddy. There is a thermocline in Gaston in the summer at about 20-25 feet. In the summer, oxygen levels are low are far down as Great Creek. The bottom is sand and gravel with some flats covered in silt, and clay hillsides. The shoreline is mostly wooded, with some high slopes. North Carolina Power and Virginia Power owns the entire 350 mile shoreline. There are lots of docks, rip rapped banks, and brushpiles. there are really a lot weeds, including elodea, milfoil, and hydrilla. This is especially true in the creek arms and coves, with the deep weedline at about 10 feet. They do treat the grass and also have added some grass carps.






The best locations for largemouth bass in the spring (March & April), are the northside creeks, especially Pea Hill and Lizard. They normally turn on first as soon as the water temperature reaches about 50 degrees. The next places that turn on is the southside arms, especially Lees and Poe. We like to fish these areas around the boathouses, rip rap, and laydowns with a chrome / blue rattlin Rapala and a Colorado spinnerbait. We stick to the structure that is in the 5-10 foot deep water. Bass here start to spawn around April 15th, and last till around June. The other areas that can be real productive are Pea Hill and Six-Pound Creeks. Sometimes we use floating worms, and wacky-rig them for some hot action. Another method that works good in these areas is soft plastic jerkbaits. During the tournament, and at other times also, we really caught most of the better fish on these baits. Fin-S-Shads were our top producers. Lake Gaston is known for a good topwater bite. You can really get into some decent bass in these areas on buzzbaits and poppers also. Even Zara Spooks produce well at times.

Later in the year, about June, the largemouth like to relate to classic bottom structure like humps, points, and stream channels, or even large beds of hydrilla. These hydrilla beds produce large bass as well as numbers until about September. We usually probe the deep weedline with a Texas-rigged worm or Yamamoto grub. The 'SENKO's' also produce well here. Usually in the mornings and at dark, we twitch jerkbaits over the top of the hydrilla, or even throw buzzbaits.

If you like to fish structure, then the main lake points at creek mouths like Pretty Creek are good. Another good spot that has bass on humps and drop offs is Hubquarter and Lyons Creeks. The 15-20 foot deep area are best, as that is where most of the baitfish are. Carolina rigged lizards are a good choice, as are for worms, 'SENKO's' and grubs. At times, we catch good fish here on deeper crankbaits as well. The water starts to cool off a lot in October and November, and the bass start moving back to the 5-10 foot deep water. The best areas at this time are Jimmie's, Lizard, and Six-Pound Creeks. We use a 3/8 to 1/2 ounce jig at this time, with a black/blue or brown/orange 'Uncle Josh Pork trailer'.






We like to carry several spinning rods for the lighter lures, in different lengths, from 6-61/2 feet, with a medium action, in a good graphite rod such as a G Loomis. We like Shimano reels, spooled with a 8-10 pound Stren. For baitcasters, we carry a variety of rods, in 6 1/2 to 7 foot lengths, in a medium/hvy action, and a crankbait rod, in 7 foot. We use Lew's and G Loomis rods, and Shimano Chronarch reels on most outfits, with 17-20 pound test Stren.

San Jose del Cabo

February 2, 2014
Anglers -

Crowds of visiting tourists are arriving in the Los Cabos Resort area,
looking to escape the frigid temperatures spread across northern
territories. Local weather conditions have been very pleasant,
scattered morning cloud cover, with plenty of warm afternoon sunshine,
lows of about 60 degrees, with highs in the 75 to 80 degree range. The
persistent northerly winds have tapered off some, not as strong as in
previous weeks. This is now peak season for spotting whales in local
waters, with common daily sightings of both gray and humpback whales.

Ocean clarity has been very clean close to shore, in the direction of
the East Cape the conditions are a bit more off colored due to
northern winds, but from La Fortuna to Cabo San Lucas the clarity has
been great for this time of year. Water temperatures varied from about
70 degree around the corner on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas, to
74 degrees on the outside of San Jose del Cabo, inshore grounds
through this same stretch was averaged about 72 degrees. Live bait
situation is still lacking, though there has been various other
options available, including ballyhoo, moonfish, skipjack for strip
bait, brined dead sardinas, etc...

Anglers were finding a variety of species, from sierra, dorado
inshore, with striped marlin and yellowfin tuna found further
offshore. The tuna being accounted for have mainly been encountered
twenty or more miles offshore of Cabo San Lucas and have been football
sized fish striking on hoochies , feathers and cedar plugs. More
sierra are now showing up throughout the area, some much larger sierra
were found on the Pacific, medium sized fish now becoming more common
in the direction of the Sea of Cortez. Trolling rapalas, hoochies and
drifting with cut baits have worked well for these scrappy fighters.

Out of San Jose del Cabo the most common catches recently have been
for dorado and bonito, these fish were striking various lures and
baits. Most of the dorado found were in the 5 to 15 lb. class. The
Eastern Pacific Bonito is a somewhat rare species, a member of the
tuna family with limited range, normally preferring the cooler winter
months, good eating fish with light colored flesh, very popular for
use in local machaca dishes. Average sizes usually are 5 to 10 lbs.,
can reach up to 20 lb. Striking a variety of lures and jigs, as well
as live and dead baits, powerful fighters for their size. This species
is most commonly found within the first 200 feet of the water column.

Striped marlin are being encountered spread out through the entire
area, more numbers encountered off of Cabo San Lucas, but also
scattered off of San Jose del Cabo grounds. No mackerel schools being
seen now, so fish are moving and searching for food sources.

Not much consistent bottom action being found, besides jigging for
bonito over the rocky structure, chrome patterned yo-yo style jigs jig
were most productive, there was an occasional pargo, cabrilla or
amberjack in the mix. Near Punta Gorda and north towards
La Fortuna there were a few wahoo hanging around, most of these fish
were smaller sized, 10 to 20 pounds, striking rigged baits more often
than on traditional lures, anglers were still fortunate to land one of
these elusive highly prized fish.

The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los
Cabos Marina sent out approximately 70 charters for this past week,
with anglers accounting for a fish count of:
3 striped marlin, 8 wahoo, 18 yellowfin tuna, 205 bonito, 68 sierra,
155 dorado, 2 amberjack,1 yellowtail,18 pargo and 10 cabrilla.

Good fishing, Eric
