Memorial Weekend is upon us and for me, this weekend marks the beginning of the good ledge fishing as well as remembering our Military personnel who’ve given their lives so we can enjoy our American Way of Life. Thank you!
The bass are starting to school up in deeper water. Good action can be found fishing 10’ to 25’ deep on the main lake and the front half of bays. Secondary points, main lake points, and off-shore humps are producing good sized and good numbers of bass. Most of my fish have been caught on 6” to 10” plastics, but heavy spinner baits, big cranks, and jigs are also good options. Small crank baits fished near shore on the main lake and at the mouths of bays are producing Smallmouths.
Action has been good fishing minnows, rooster tails, and spoons 15’ to 25’ deep on main lake humps and deep points at the mouths of bays.
I’ve caught some good sized Crappie lately fishing minnows 12’ to 18’ deep on main lake brush.
Good Bluegill action can still be found. Fish 4’ to 10’ deep nearer the mouths of bays. Wax worms, crickets, and night crawlers are all productive.
Channel Cats are being caught on night crawlers and leeches fished 4’ to 10’ along shore and 25’ deep near the river channel. Blues can be caught at the mouths of bays and on the main lake. Fish minnows and leeches 25’ to 45’ deep.
Good Fishing and be safe this weekend.
Capt Kirk, out!
