The Bass bite has been decent the last few weeks. We have not been catching many numbers but have been catching some quality fish! We have been starting the mornings off fishing shallow around the creek ledges. These spots have been producing some nice Large Mouth and Some 5lbs Spots. We have been throwing 6 to 8in Hard Swim Baits. The Color hasn’t seen to make much difference. We have also cought some nice bass on White Super Rooster tails while trying to catch Brown Trout. Working the spinners with a reel and pause technique has been productive. The water temps should drop quick over the next few weeks. The spoon bite should pick up in the mouths of the creeks and on a 30ft bottom on the main lake points.
Brown Trout.
The Trout bite has finally rebounded. These fish are midway back in the creeks on a 18 to 25ft bottom. We have had good success trolling Loco Spoons #3 and #4 at a speed of 3.5 mph. Slow trolling night crawlers on a crawler harness is a very effective way of catching these trout this time of year. This technique also doubles a great way to catch a Walleye. I typically troll the Crawler Harnesses on the down riggers set at a depth of 10 to 18ft. Trolling at speed of 1.5 to 2.4 mph works best. Maintaining speed this slow this time of year can be difficult. Try using the wind to your advantage. These techniques should continue to catch Trout and Walleye for the next few weeks.

Good Luck!
