Lately I have had to really pick apart the laydowns to get the bites. And it's true that considering what Randleman is capable of, it's been scattered and slow. There are areas on the lake that will produce for the guys who know them, hence the big bags for the tournaments.
This time of year, as the fish transition to a Fall pattern, things change at Randleman. I have not yet really figured out the method for Fall out there, so while I can help with the rest of the year, especially with the limited fishing time I have had I am not of much use right now.
Don't give up on her, and focus on main lake points with deeper water nearby, especially if you see bait schools around. What bites have been happening that I know of have been in the upper half of each major arm on or not far from points. Flats near those points sometimes give up some odd fish, as well so don't forget those.
