Tip of the Month Fish the Right Depth
By Jackie Vancleave
“In November I’ll usually be fishing in 10 to 14 feet of water. As the water cools during the month I’ll move shallow, maybe in six feet of water, as the crappie chase the shad into the shallower water. If you’re not catching fish this time of year it’s important to change depths until you find them.”
