Fall is an awesome time to catch some of the biggest crappies of the year. Give fall crappie fishing a try, you will not be disappointed. With crappies in big schools remember to take a few and release the rest to preserve the resource.
Walleyes have been slow. With stable weather this week, fishing should improve. With the other fish biting so well, I wouldn’t waste my time. Large mouth fishing has been all right.
Rock Bass and Bluegills are still being caught all over the lake. Nightcrawlers fished on the split shot rig produce most of the action. The best depth has been 8-15 ft. of water. My best location has been by Coleman’s Point drifting to Knollwood.
Good action can be found in and around the piers in 5-6 ft of water. Fish them with a slip bobber and a leaf worm. Perch are in 10 ft of water. They are location is some of their standard areas such as Rainbow Point and Belvidere Park.
Perch are still being caught also in the shallow water. 8-10 ft with scattered weeds is working well. Small fathead minnows fished on a slip bobber rig are producing most of the action. Look for the fish by Knollwood or by Belvidere Park.
Walleye fishing has been awesome casting or trolling stick baits in the shallows. Best locations Maytag Point and Buttons Bay.
Northern Pike action still remains kind of slow. The fish are still deep and still scattered. I think we will see a major improvement as the water cools and the fish move up into the weeds. Look for the fish by Fontana Beach or the North shore of the narrows. The best approach continues to […]
Largemouth bass are being caught on the weedline. The best approach is Carolina rigging green pumpkin lizards or drop shotting Gulp finesse worms, also in green pumpkin.
