Fishing Report

Bay Springs - 10/16/2017 10:33:40 AM

The bass bite on the lake is fair to good, but should only get better as we get into the cooler temps of autumn. Numbers of fish are being caught but quality bites are a bit harder to come by. Anglers are targeting the grass more and more with increasing success catching largemouth. Topwater baits, flukes, swimbaits, senkos, and spinnerbaits continue to get the nod from anglers targeting the grass. For spotted bass, anglers are targeting mainlake points in 10 – 20 ft of water. Catching fish on shakeyheads and dropshots is not a problem, but the average size is small. The crappie bite has really started picking up over the last week or so. Anglers are targeting brushtops in 14 – 25 ft water. Vertical jigging has been the most popular technique, but a few folks are pulling/trolling jigs as well. Both minnows and jigs are catching fish, but let the fish dictate what you use. No catfish report this week.
