Fishing drops

I fished the ULM yesterday evening and the trout bite was on fire! I must have caught 12 keeper and 3-4 dink trout within an hour. I was wading alongside a couple of kayakers. They were drifting 5-6 ft of water and I was fishing a gradual drop from knee deep to 5ft of water and they watched me pull in keeper after keeper as I watched them pull in dink after dink and saw more skippies go airborne than I'd care to witness. About 7:00 we both decide to head back in and met up at the dock. The gentleman asked what my secret was, and I tried to explain the best I could about staying shallow and fishing the drop. Most of the fish I caught were hooked in 2-3 ft of water. On that note here's a tip for novice fisherman that I see happening all too often when fishing near drop offs. I've taken numerous people wading near drop offs and the first thing they want to do is get close to the drop and fish the deeper water. That technique works great if you want to catch more dinks and skippies than keepers. But for the quality trout and reds what you need to do is stay within casting distance to the drop itself and actually fish the depth change. Stay away from the edge, if you get too close then you will scare away the keepers. That’s my dinner strategy. If you want to go after trophies well that’s a whole different strategy all together. Trout were fat fat fat caught on a cocahoe minnow glitter back silver belly chartreuse paddle tail.

Great job!! Yea, I had to watch a few high flying skippers the other day too. Good advice, with the wind the other morning I was deeper than I wanted to be but I had to create a casting angle. One of the big ones I lost was because I hooked it about 15 feet away from me. 👍
