Summer Fishing Tricks: Early Morning Bite (Whopper plopper and Crankbait)

June 8, 2020 50 No Comments

Description


No one likes getting up early but in Summer, its worth it! Midday the lake can feel like a Dead Sea if you don’t know where to look but in the morning, everything is alive! Come along with Matt on the Tennessee River as he explores new water and builds a morning pattern with a whopper plopper, lipless crankbait, and wobble head (swing head jig).

Most anglers fish a whopper plopper on a slow, steady retrieve. Most of the time we do too, but there is a time and place for the popping method and today it paid off with 2 nice bites. After the topwater bite slowed Matt turned to a lipless and ultimately a swinging jig to continue catching fish. 

The morning bite window is incredibly easy but is also very short. Its imperative that you get on the water at first light and if you’re not prepared to begin shadow fishing and targeting offshore fish, expect the bite to be done before 9 AM. Below we’ve included links to all the gear Matt used in today’s video. We included the exact colors as well as recommendations on some of our other favorites.
