The Jackson area has picked up with this fall season in full swing now. Big Bluegills have worked their way out of the shallows into a little deeper water along the weed edges and submerged weed beds. The bluegills are not to their wintering grounds yet but a few more cold spells and they will be very soon as we get colder nights you will begin to see this transition. The best way to target these fish in the Fall of year is a very simple presentation, either using a spring bobber or slip bobber with a cricket, leaf worm, or hair jigs as bait. Also, as Fall takes over our beautiful state the Northern Pike fanatics begin to get excited. Pike are now feeding heavily as temps have dropped and nights are staying cold, a few reports of big pike being caught using Husky Jerks (silver/black and gold/silver) and Spinners(brighter the better) along weed edges. When working these two presentations you will want to remember to have a little bit faster retrieving speed then normal, these fish are feeding heavily for winter and becoming more and more active every day so making them chase it is okay while targeting these bigger and more aggressive Northern Pike.
