The Brown Trout bite has really picked up. The majority of the trout population had moved over the southern portions of Lake Burton. The fish can be found on a 38ft bottom and an 80ft bottom. The key to catching these trout is locating them on the fish finder. Spend some time scanning for them before trying to catch them! This will eliminate ” cold blind fishing”. Try trolling white spoons or Herring color cranks baits in the 20 ft depth range. Monitoring boat speed is essential this time of year. We try to maintain a speed of 2.8 mph making several passes the in the areas where the fish are located. Look for the trout to remain over deep water the next couple of months.
The majority of the bass are out over deep water 30 to 60 ft. Most of these fish are suspending near or close to structure. We have been catching these fish drop shooting ( Robo Worms). We have also been using a Super Fish (Super Spin in 1/2 oz white head) tipped with a white Zoom fluke Jr. Try working this bait on steep ledges where the fish can access deep water quickly. Look for this bite to continue throughout the next few weeks.
