Arizona urban waters

So I've gotten some good advice on proven methods for this time of year and it is appreciated. Now I would like to ask specifically if anyone knows which urban lakes or canal areas are top notch at this time and throughout the year

This time of year at urban Arizona waters

So I was at Kiwanis park lake today and caught 14 gills and a bass off a black with white stripe beetle jig off the bottom and a McDonald twin Colorado size #00 with size #14 hook with meal worm on the end.



However: all the fish small and big are chasing all the way from minnows to shad but very touchy on lures. I have my teen daughters this weekend and recently bought them both good spinning outfits and I want them to have a fish packed time.



Does anyone have any advice… Continue

Artificial bait

This was my first catch of a bluegill on artificial bait. It was a Trout Magnet grub. Up 'til now it's always been worms and the occasional scrounged-up grasshopper or cricket.



Shortly after, I got a crappie on the same bait. The fish was small but stout. I haven't seen a lot of crappie yet, but this one seemed really bulky and thick-muscled. It might grow up to be a really rewarding catch for someone.

A little after that, I snagged the grub and lost it, and…
