Me and a friend are going out with a guide on friday April 30 but for thursday night are going to be fishing below the hull lake dam from the bank. I would appreciate any and all advice that we recieve. I have had my guides recomendations on bait and techniques but as we all know that there is some great soup mambers that could tell me that little extra something to make all the difference.

Thanks Guys

Might not be a bad idea to bring some heavy lead weight and soak a few on the bottom while casting artificials... Very Happy

Lots of good info here on boils fishing... maybe try a search.

Not a bad place to throw some 1 oz jigs from the bank. I've done it once and caught a few smaller fish in the summer. Not too sure about this time of year, but it might work. Similar to the jig fishing below Melton Hill, but you drift left to right rather than right to left.

Alot of flow right now, but a heavy bucktail will catch one if its there. Who is your guide?

Bob Bach is the guide were going with. We are meeting him Friday morning at the boat ramp.

Here is a link that may be of some help:

I would suggest casting heavy 1 oz doll flies with 6" white twister tails. My second choice would be big wild eyez swim baits. And if jacks are avialable toss a couple those on the bottom with heavy lead.

Good luck! Tight Lines!
