I am going fish the mighty Navajo reservoir the last week of April! Does anyone have any suggestions as to what baits or techniques to use ? I plan on targeting smallies, like, crappies ...anything would be appreciated!

Never been there but you can't go wrong carrying a few jerkbaits. That can be said for pretty much anywhere IMO. I have been catching a ton of smallies lately doing an aggressive sweep and then pausing for up to five seconds. Then repeat. Give it a try.

Great lake-wish it were closer. There are pike in there and a jerk will get you into them as well as the bass. Tubes are good. I think the NM side of the lake which is most of it, fishes better.

You're going at a good time, late April everything should be on a good bite.

If you want crappie use tubes right in the trees. vertical jigging or you get snagged constantly.

Catchinabuzz just fished it this weekend testing out his new electronics, he will probably chime in, and he might even share a report.

Not worth the trip yet. Should be better when you are planning to go. Water was 47 degrees on sunday and the fishing sucked ass

Thank you everyone for your input !!!
Definitely talk g a ton of jerks down there. Tubes are a must . Good to hear we are timing it right !!! I am glad you all didn't say drop shot!!! Because I know nothing about that technique ... I am goi g to have to expand my deep diving jerk selection before I go. I also want to try the bed rig down there!!!
47 degrees that's is cold... fingers are crossed . Looks like a badass fishery!

Thanks again
