TRACE STATE PARK:
As the water temps are in the 50’s, the crappie anglers are
hitting the creek channels and deep brushtops on the fishing side of the lake with
fair success. The crappie may be suspended in these areas, so try multiple
depths as well as multiple techniques to see where they are at for that day. Good
electronics are a big help in those situations. The bream bite is slowing down
but some fish can still be caught. A few anglers are reporting catches off the
points and in the coves in 5-10 ft of water on tight-lined redworms and grubs. The
bass bite is fair. The bass are starting to move deeper as the water cools, so
primary drop-offs are good places to start looking. The best baits have been
crankbaits, spinnerbaits, A-rigs and t-rigged plastics. Other slower techniques
like suspending jerkbaits, shakeyheads and drop-shots should produce some bites
as winter get closer.
