I’m gonna try this new lake. Swartswood Lake. Below is a photo of the depth map. I want the Experts to take this sort for the benefit of us all. Where would you fish it and how at 50 degrees and mid-nov and 50 degree water with decreasing moon.
If I were fishing it right now, I would begin with long points and areas labeled as rocks. There are several points but my eye is drawn to two under water points on the north side of the image, dark green in color. Just to the left of the text gravel and just to the left of the text rocks. If they are blank, then I am heading to the North and South Banks with the generous flats but still staying near the main points with some browsing on secondary points. Hopefully by then, I can start to develop an idea as to what the fish are gravitating towards.
I will add one caveat. This weather is driving me crazy! I could not find a pattern to save my life today. Grrrrr! I don't think the fish know where to be either right now. LOL
I was thinking of the almost clifflike area on the south shore. Ned and or minnow drifting down. Then I'd start working the light green to blue of the north shore near sand and gravel searching for walleye. Bait for this. The sand and muck areas would probably produce food for fish during the really coldwater times. For Pickerel I might try where the number 9 (north) and 30( south) and Rocks area.
