    How to Fish Little George's????

  I have been looking for info on how to fish little George's but have not been very lucky. Can you shed some light on the different ways to fish them for the fall and winter months out here in California. Also in the late Fall and Winter I have a hard time locating fish. I mainly fish deep canyon type lakes out here (Casitas & Castaic) which have the finicky Florida strain largemouth. But when it comes down to these periods where the fish can sometimes go as deep as 80ft or more, I am stumped. Can you give me some suggestions on areas to look or basically where to start my search?

Thanks for your time,

   Hey Jeff the way I do it from Castaic Dave  9/19/2002 10:07:00 AM
 Hey buddy its my turn to do you YOU a favor! HA!

I fish them several ways (there really is no wrong way to fish lil' George) you can throw them out let it sink down to your desired depth and swim it through what ever you are fishing.

Fish it somewhat like a darter head jig.

YoYo like a kastmaster. I have just bought about 10 myself thats a good one to throw at Castaic, as you know I dont know much about Casitas except they have big fish! Good luck and I hope this helps. Pretty basic I know, but its basic lure, fish it what ever way you can, it works!

Also some tomes you have to try different colors.

God bless


   Along these same subject lines, how do you fish a Silver Buddy? from scottb (  9/19/2002 12:43:00 PM

 Hey guys, you can fish both lures similarly. Try vertically jigging them near bridge pilings, or along rock bluffs, like cliff walls. This is the perfect time of year for this approach, because the shad are at their largest size and are schooled up. Count the lure down to the depth where you are marking fish, then lift the lure 2-3 feet, and then let it slowly fall. With the silver buddy, pick the lure up with a sharp jerk to set the body of the lure into a rapid vibration. Pull the Little George up steadily to let the spinnerblade do its thing. Lower both slowly, like you would a jig, because 85% of the fish that hit these lures will hit on the drop, similar to pig-and-jig or Texas rigged worm. Hope this helps.

 You must have a pretty good depth finder to see those ? LOL
