New Lake Record recently caught by Austin Vowell
weighing 14 lbs 5 ozs. Congratulations Austin, thats a
fish of a lifetime!
Bass had been moving up on their beds but the cooler
temps. temporarily back them off of the shallows. They are
slowly coming back into 2 to 3 ft of water. Areas along the
dam that contain structure are still holding fish. Spinner
baits and crank baits work worked well this week. There
continue to be reports of largemouth bass caught between 3 and
8 pounds. The big fish are there to be caught, but it
takes a lot of patience to be successful.
Try catfish in 8 - 10 ft of water around brush
piles or along creek channels. Liver, minnows or worms are best
bets for baits. Several nice 2 to 3 lb fish have
been reported using liver fishing on the bottom off the road but
action has been a little slow.
Bream should be targeted at depths of 8 - 10
ft around creek channels and structure. Tightlining on the
bottom with red worms or crickets are the
best methods this time of year. There are no current
reports at this time.
Crappie have started to move up around tops and the small
island. Tipping with a small minnow could help increase your
chances. The crappie bite continues to be good with catches being
made in 2 to 3 feet of water. The best luck has been with
blue/white, black/green, and solid green jigs this past week. The
catch continues to be good.
