Black Bass: Now that the lake water temperature has cooled down a bit, bass action has greatly improved. Medium diving crank baits, spinner baits and plastic worms are all good lure choices at this time. The best structures to fish are boat docks or any type of rock or concrete in water depths less than 10 feet or so. These kinds of structures hold bait that bass tend to feed on.
Crappie: Crappie also get more aggressive during this time of year and will be holding near deep structures, bridge pilings, timber and brush in depths from 17’ – 30’. Minnows or crappie jigs can both be great baits when fished in this type of cover.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: At the time of year these fish sometimes school together over main humps and points and can be caught by trolling pet spoons or bouncing slab spoons near the bottom in 20’ – 30’ depths. It’s a good idea to search for these fish with your electronics before working the area.
Catfish: Catfish action during this time can be great. With the change of the season, larger catfish are much more aggressive. Just bait up areas along the river or creek channel with milo or range cubes and use shrimp or dip baits and get ready for some great action.
