WEEKLEY FISHING REPORT
The weather has turned back into summer and the water temps are moving back up. I had 75 on the water yesterday after seeing it drop to 68 and I am still seeing some signs of turnover but the main lake bite is back as good as it was back in August. Fish bunched up on deep brush and being able to get a three man limit in less than two hours. We are still drifting minnows over deep piles and just watching corks go down one right after another. I am setting up the slip bobbers anywhere from 14-18 feet depending on how deep the top of the brush is. There is still a thermocline on the south end at about thirty feet and I have been able to catch fish as deep as twenty-five. We are also getting quite a few big white bass once we start to fish that deep. They are on the ends of points and on sheer drop-offs suspended down anywhere from fifteen to twenty.
For the white bass I am using a drop shot rig or a half ounce weight on bottom and then a tensile hook tied on about a foot above it on a small loop and then using a minnow. The heavy weight allows you to feel the
rough bottom the white bass prefer.
