Fishing Report
December 2017



Fish docks and structure in the mouths of creeks, main lake points and drop offs. On very warm sunny days fish may venture back into the creeks but they wont go too far. The fish are mixed in with the stripers in some areas because they are feeding on the same schools of bait now and will for most of the winter. The bass, however, tend to be closer to structure. Use Sea Shads, sassy shads, jigs, and spoons. A multi bait rig is working as several anglers have reported nice catches using multiply swim baits with this popular getup. Several 7 lb fish reported this week.


The fish are gradually making their way downlake. Start at the 208 bridge and work your way up to the bridges on either side. Concentrate your efforts around the splits. Stay in the main lake and fish 8′-15′ deep throwing sassy shads, sea shads, and jigging spoons. This is a great time to use a multi bait rig as you can move a small school of swimbaits in front of a striper. Live bait anglers are also doing very well.


Fish bridge pilings and deep brush piles. Use small minnows rigged on slip bobbers and 2″ grubs.  Fish 15-25′ depending on the weather and sunshine.  The fish should be feeding heavily over the winter.
