Le Baron Ice Fishing Seminar
I was on the lake for less than an hour and was working my Rapala Skitter Pop across the surface in 30 feet of water. One tip I had before my arrival was that Lake Joseph’s big smallmouth love to feed on suspending ciscoes. The advice was followed by a stern “and drop shotting is definitely the way to go”. My choice of a topwater lure to entice these deep bass lurking beneath the ciscoes may have been the last choice for many anglers … but I knew from past experiences in similar lakes… the rewards can be remarkable.
