    Surface lures become effective when stripers and hybrids are feeding in the shallows, during spring and fall. The best action occurs ...more from sunset until about midnight. Slowly retrieve large stickbaits including the Pro Wake from Livingston Lures®

  4. Details: Smallmouth Fishing Hot Spot®

    Free Fishing Hot Spot®
    The Medina shoreline south of Bill Gates’ house is good for smallmouth along the docks. Smallmouth move into the shallows onto the gravel ...more beds during pre-spawn in May and drop-shotting small finesse baits like a PowerTeam® 7" Tickler is best for these early fish. Smallmouth will spawn in a bit deeper water than the largemouth, so depths around 10 feet will hold bass through all phases of the spawn. Reaction and jerk baits like the Livingston Lures® Stickemaster 20 and crawdad-colored crank baits like the Livingstone Lures® Diver Master 14 can be very productive throughout the warmer months.

    2. I read that Bill Gates has the world's biggest aquarium tank in his house. I wonder if he likes to fish?
