Hello roughfishermen and roughfisherwomen,
This coming Monday, July 31st, my dad and I are taking our last trip before I head off to college. We have turned our eyes to Nelson Reservoir, a modest sized eastern Montana reservoir. Nelson is home to multiple MT roughfish state records, including the buffaloes.
I have read the tactics from this site and others, as well as watched videos on YouTube. Here is what I have gathered:
Tiny hooks - is size 14 okay?
Sensitive rod tips for small subtle bite.
Small bait - would a little piece of worm work?
Bigmouths filter feed, so a suspended bait would be the way to go for them.
Any thoughts or more tips? I think it'll be a long shot this time of year, but it's worth a shot.
