Looking for help from Indiana

Reply
I am coming down the first of April for a National Bass Tournament. We will be launching at Grand Encore. I am a medically pensioned firefighter and can not afford to make a trip down prior to pre fish. I was looking for any help or suggestions that anyone on here might want to offer. I am looking for any kind of help. From what style or colors to use in pool 3 all the way to dangerous areas that need extra care when trying to fish or approach. Any kind of help or info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Bruce

Hey Bruce.
As far as tips for locations I've never been up there to go fish. Check out the la sportsman YouTube page and watch the Greg hackney videos for bass fishin. I'm a newbie when it comes to bass and I've watched and rewatched his videos. Has a lot of helpful tips and tricks. I've been practicing all in the pond by my house and I caught a few 1-3 lb bass on either red shad worms or a spinner bait that resembles shad and bream colors. Hope it helps.

Order a map from Red River Waterway. That time of year try the backs of cut-offs, run outs, etc. Throw a jig/trailer combo, wacky worm, weightless senko, spinner bait, and possibly a flat billed shallow running crank bait. Black, black/blue, crawfish color, etc. The fish that time of year aren't normally in the river but out of current spawing. Be careful of running across rock jetties if the water is up. . . that's why a map is important.

CLARKE VS........Thank you for your help and info about what to use. Being from Indiana though , I have to ask what do you mean by cut-offs and run-outs ?. I did get a Waterway Map Book. I only wished it was more current than 2006 though. Thank you again for any and all help you have. Bruce
