    Three-pronged bass approach at Lake Okhissa

    I’m concentrating on 1,075-acre Lake Okhissa this month, since it is home to plenty of vegetation and numbers of big bass. September often is a tricky month to fish for bass; baitfish are starting to move into shallow water — with bass following them — and the vegetation is breaking up some, which means more areas will be available to fish than in the summer. My favorite lures will be surface lures, frogs and punch baits.

    Color catfish hot

    September in Mississippi can be the hottest time of the year. Noted for the return of football, deer-camp workdays and oppressive heat, it is still the heart of summer — even though fall is on the horizon as the ninth month arrives.

    Shimano Curado DC Baitcasting reels

    The DC stands for Digital Control, and quite honestly it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I got the chance to fish with one this spring at Grosse Savanne Lodge during a Shimano media presentation, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
