Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: What to do during Drawdowns
By Steve VonBrandt

One of the biggest obstacles an angler can face is finding, and then catching, fish in Big Lakes or Reservoirs where the water levels fluctuate dramatically, such as in Spruce Run, in New Jersey, in the recent past. Many lakes or Reservoirs, can rise or fall as much as 10 feet. This happened to us at a tournament in Bull Schoals, MO, a few years ago.

There are many factors that cause these fluctuations. Bodies of water that are dammed by hydroelectric plants, have upsurges of power in the extremely hot or cold periods of weather, that cause them to run more turbines and the level of the water drops. Sometimes it is a drought, and even the smaller bodies of water here in the Northeast get drastically low at times. On some lakes, in the East, they lower the water levels for irrigation, to build new launching ramps, to try to control weed growth, and to keep the ice from cracking their docks in the winter. Changing water levels can put even the best angler to the test.

Some other reasons they lower the water levels are due to an effort to try to restore the sportfishing to some lakes or Reservoirs that have suffered a decline, due to poor water quality. This happens a lot when the bottom of the lake, which is usually rock or mud, accumulate to the point of oversaturation along the shoreline, and the vegetation gets too dense. This can be from excess phosphorus, nitrogen, and other things from chemical sewage treatment plants. These drawdowns kills off the excess vegetation. I fished lakes in Florida, Missouri, and right here in Delaware, such as Diamond in Milford, and Hearns in Seaford. Becks Pond also is drawn sometimes, along with other Delaware, New Jersey, and Maryland waters.

'What To Do'

If the drawdown happens quickly, the bass, and the minnows they feed on, will head to deeper water. Look for the deepwater points, any offshore humps, creekbeds, stump fields, submerged islands, and docks the go out into deeper water.

Since small baitfish and Crawfish are the main diet of bass almost anywhere, the lure and color choices you make should reflect that. Whether it's lipped or lipless crankbaits, blade baits, crankbaits, jigs, flukes, or Jerkbaits, they should match the forage in the lake or Reservoir. I like to use G. Loomis rods, and Shimano reels, in spinning, and baitcasting models, in 6 1/2 to 7 foot lengths, with 10-14 pound line.

'Develop A Pattern'

The bass are going to be on the move in these low water periods, so you have to be versatile. Vary your retrieves, working the edges of points and humps from shallow to deep. If the banks are gravely, or sloping type banks, then we generally use a jig, and other crawfish type baits. I like to cast to the banks, and stairstep the lure down. This has worked well for me in many New Jersey, and Missouri Reservoirs and Lakes. Keep your eyes open for old duckblinds,and docks that border deep water. They will block the sunlight, and provide good ambush points. After a big drawdown, we take our cameras to the lake and take plenty of pictures. This can really help later, and teach you what certain features look like on the fish locator, since you will have seen it first hand. During the drawdown at Diamond and in Red Mill Pond, we took plenty of photos to compare later.

We found offshore humps in many places, which were a bonanza at many times after the water was raised. Drop shot rigs, with a spider grub, Senko, or small worm, worked on the drop-offs in these areas in productive also. Keep your eyes open for any moving water by points when a fast drawdown occurs. Cast downcurrent and work the deeper running crankbaits from top to bottom. I like to use a Carolina rigged bait during these times, in these areas also. Marking the humps, points, and other visible structures on a GPS is a great idea. Combined with first hand knowledge, photos, a map, and GPS points, you can win a tournament or just increase your weekend fishing fun.

Report Description:


USA toll-free (800) 919-2252; Mexico 011-52-624-14-10373

Sat., Oct. 02, 2004. Report covers the period Sat.-Fri. (9/25-10/01)



IN GENERAL: There are plenty of large dorado in the front yard less than three miles from the hotels. Additionally, an extraordinary tuna snap a few miles further out has everyone trying to catch their breath by noon. Billfish are the weakest link in the Grand Slam, but who cares when you have fat dorado and tuna to bend your rod all morning?

Water temperature 79-88
Air temperature 74-91
Humidity about 80%
Wind: NNW 11 mph in p.m.
Conditions: Scattered Clouds
Visibility 15 miles
Sunrise 7:10 a.m. MDT
Sunset 7:04 p.m. MDT

Oct. 6, Last Quarter; Oct. 14, New; Oct. 20, First Quarter; Oct. 27, Full.

+ OFFSHORE: Tuna is their name and that’s the game. A few billfish if you care.

+ INSHORE: Dorado, close to shore and aggressive, dominated the scene all week. It doesn’t get much better.

+ BEACH: More roosters and anglers as everyone is focusing on the tuna and dorado whack.

BILLFISH – OK if you have to.

YELLOWFIN TUNA – Fling a wasabi toward the porpoise and hang on. Repeat as needed until too tired to reel.

DORADO – Getting larger, but still within a few miles of shore.

ROOSTERFISH\\JACK CREVALLE – Still looking for a fight after a long day? Try early morning in front of your hotel. Look for the birds and boils.

BARRILETE OR MEXICAN SKIPJACK – Only an incidental catch this week.

PARGO AND CABRILLA – Rocky points best.

SIERRA – Not enough to rig with wire.


IN GENERAL: Rough seas all week prevented many from venturing out. There were a few dorado, wahoo and marlin with lockjaw reported at 14 to18 miles on a 230-250 heading for the few who braved the conditions. Back at the entrada, for those with more nerve than discretion, the yellowtail and grouper kept their party going.

Water Temperature 74-82
Air Temperature 72-82
Humidity 89%
Wind West 11 mph
Conditions: Scattered Clouds

Sunrise 7:19 a.m. MDT
Sunset 7:11 p.m. MDT

Oct. 6, Last Quarter; Oct. 14, New; Oct. 20, First Quarter; Oct. 27, Full..

YELLOWTAIL – Watch for the bird schools at the entrada.

CORVINA – Still spread out the bay from the entrada to Devil’s Curve.

SNOOK – This should be the month, but nothing except small ones so far.

HALIBUT – Always! Just find a sandy beach and try a slowly retrieved Baja Deep Diver

SIERRA – A few mixed in the bird schools at the entrada.


IN GENERAL: The 80º blue water is still holding a few miles off the beach, and the current lines with debris washed out of the rivers, are still well defined.

The full moon did slow down the sailfish fishing, with only an average of about one or two per boat being caught per day. Steve Carlson, from the Los Angeles area, fished on the “Vamonos II” for five strikes from sailfish in the spread, but managed to only hooked and release one.

The 20 to 35 pound dorado are still holding in the current lines, and most boats are getting two or three per day.

The inshore action for roosters and jack crevalle is heating up as the water turbidity clears. We are still getting some river runoff from nightly rains in the Sierra, but the flows have slowed a bit, discharging less silt than the past few weeks.

The Jacks or Better Charity Tournament and Guide Challenge begin on Wed. Many of the participants will begin arriving tomorrow (10/3) to pre-fish and practice for the event. The Guide Challenge has attracted interesting field of guides from across the US. They all are joining us in search of the “Endless Season” and the honor of being named the top Zihuatanejo Guide of 2004, not to mention the $1,000 that goes with the title. We will provide daily updates beginning Thurs. (10/7)

Baja on the Fly's Zihuatanejo report by Ed Kunze


Finally! It’s October, so let the games begin. Sailfish have been gathering for the past two weeks chewing on schools of baitfish outside of 30 miles. All we need now are the big game saltwater fly-fishers who want to play tug-o-war with a 100- to 150-pound screaming billfish to complete the mix.
