Why Are You Fishing at Choke Canyon and Fayette County

In this episode we hit the waters of Choke Canyon Reservoir with Wade Middleton as he visits the lake for his annual fishing trip to the lake. What he finds on this trip will surprise everyone who knows the history of the lake as he hits the water!

Then we’ll join Mike McClelland as he goes fishing on a spring afternoon on a new body of water he’s not visited before in an effort to share how he locates bass based on the conditions for that day.

While at Choke Canyon Wade will see a newly flooded lake that has risen over 15 feet in the past 6 months resulting in flooded brush and grass that basically gives the bass more places to hide than ever before. On Mikes fishing trip he spends time cranking rocks and off shore structure with crank baits and why he picks one bait over the other. He’s going to share how he sets up his sonar, choosing a bait for right situation when you’re fishing and how to target bass from shallow to deep.
