Black Bass: Now that the lake water has cooled down a bit, the 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’ or so.
Crappie: Crappie also get more aggressive at this time of year and they will be holding near deep structures, bridge pilings, timber and brush piles in depths from 15’ – 22’. Minnows and crappie jigs can both be great baits when fished in this type of cover. If one spot doesn’t work out, keep moving until you locate a school.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: Often at this time of year these fish will bunch up over main lake humps and points and can be caught by trolling pet spoons in these areas in 20’ – 30’ depths. It’s a good idea to search for these fish with your electronics before fishing 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 a creek channel with milo or range cubes and use either shrimp or dip baits and get ready for some great action.
