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.

1 Blue Marlin Released (#250 est.)


Instead of a fish report for this time frame, I am giving a little update on the work done to the
boat. New bottom paint, replaced the old bronze shaft logs with fiberglass ones because the last
time the port engine and transmission were removed they were not re-aligned when replaced and
we wore a hole in the side of the old bronze one, that caused us to take on a lot of water and also
warped the shaft a bit so we got a lot of vibration. Both shafts were cut down by 2 3/4” and new
packing sleeves installed. Shaft couplings turned and trued. New props. The rudders were
removed and taken to a shop where they had bronze added to the shafts and were turned so the
shafts were equal in diameter all the way through, no rudder rattle and smoother turning. New
hardware for the rudders. Hull and topsides compounded and waxed and the binini tops re-sewn
(next time we will have new tops), just have to save the money! A pretty busy week all in all.


Joe Antenucci, Joe Baron, Don Ridolfi and Rich Walters are our anglers for today and they will
be fishing on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday as well. The idea is for them to get Marlin, at least
for Joe Antenucci. That is the game plan for the day and that is what we set out to do. It was
Juan and myself on the boat today. Manuel asked for Wednesday through Sunday off so he could
travel with his baseball team for competition up and down the peninsula (got out of a lot of the
dry dock work as well). Yesterday one of the boats had gotten a #600+ Blue Marlin 6 miles from
the arch so we headed out toward the lighthouse on the Pacific side first. Oops, maybe not the
first thing. The first thing was to take care of a problem at the fuel dock. As I went into the store
to get our ice, the shaft on the port engine backed out of the coupling and all of a sudden we had
no port propulsion. We determined the problem quickly and 30 minutes later Juan had everything
re-attached and tightened and we were on our way. One of the little things that we did not pick
up on during the sea trials yesterday when the boat returned to the water. Oh well, no harm done
and just a little bit late. When we reached the area about four miles off of the lighthouse we put
lines in the water. It was perfect Marlin water, 2-3 foot swells with lots of wind chop. At a
distance of six miles offshore and eight miles for the arch, we had a look at our first fish. A
Striped Marlin came up on the lure in the long position and followed it. Juan gunned the engines
as I ran down and dropped a bait back. The fish disappeared and did not come back. That was at
8:45. I told the guys when we started this morning that the best time for the Blue Marlin was
going to be between 10 AM and 2 PM and that dead on noon would be the best shot of the day,
the tide would be about an hour and 15 minutes before high. Well, I was wrong because at 11:20
we had a Blue Marlin show up on the lure in the long position, off of the bridge rod. I was
scanning the water when out of the side of my vision I caught the bridge rod beginning to bend.
Then the reel gave a short scream. Juan was on it in a flash as I went down to drop back a live
bait. I had the bait halfway back in the pattern when Juan yelled that it was a big Blue, not a
Striped, so I reeled in the bait. The Blue struck at the lure four times, and each time missed. On
the last shot, Juan had the rod tip raised and as the Blue came in behind the lure, he dropped the
rod tip and let the lure right back into the Marlin’s mouth! Hook Up! We managed to get the rod
passed down to Joe and he settled into the fight. Don had the video cameras going, needing to
document the fish for friends and family back home. The only jump the Marlin did was just after
Juan had set the hook, and the fish lunged from the water going from left to right across the
pattern. Nice fish. Joe had steady pressure on the fish the whole time, not backing the drag off a
bit. After ten minutes his fingers were getting tired of holding the rod with all the pressure on it
and after 20 minutes had said he had enough, he was not able to hold onto the rod any longer.
That was when I remembered that we had a belt harness on board. My fault entirely, I should
have had it out from the beginning. We got Joe strapped into the harness and he was able to
continue the fight. This fish never got more than 200 yards of line out, we never got into the
backing on the reel. The last twenty minutes of the fight was all at a distance where we could
occasionally see color. Joe went to low speed on the reel and I coached him on the short strokes
and we finally got the fish close enough for me to get leader in hand . As soon as I had wraps
with both hands I told Joe to back off on the drag and he did it. The fish held along the port side
of the boat for 5 seconds, long enough to have tagged him had I three hands, then turned away
from the boat, I was able to get him turned back and we had a great jump on leader at the back of
the boat. The fish turned to the starboard side and as I followed it around the leader got hung up
on the bait bag frame for a second. That was long enough to halt the fish short of clearing the
boat and pulled him under. That is when the prop touched the leader and all of a sudden we had
released the Marlin. Estimated at 250 pounds, it was a great 45 minute job by Joe! That was it
for the day and we were lucky, as a lot of boats did not catch anything today. After watching Joe
fight the Marlin, I am not sure if the other guys really want to catch their own Marlin or not, but
we have three more day to do it in! Keep your fingers crossed for us!
