Line-side fishing is Fair … but getting better with each passing day.
The live-bait bite is still slow but should start to improve as we move into November. We are still catching decent numbers of white bass with a few Flatheads on jigging spoons. This might be the most consistent bite on the lake right now.
Trolling: The umbrella-rig bite is your best overall bet if you’re looking for Hybrids and Stripers. Look for these fish to be on the smaller size. This week I have been pulling my rigs 75-80’ behind the boat on a 16-20’ bottom. These fish are on the move. So make sure you cover a lot of water. I have caught fish as far north as the S-turns this week and all the way south to the dam.
Topwater bite: DEAD. I have seen very limited topwater action this week. Most of it seems to be spotted bass. I look for the topwater bite to pick up after the lake finishes turning over.
