Fishing Report July 4th weekend
With the second holiday upon us, Table Rock Lake Fishing is still very good. The top water bite has fallen off but the deep bite is going strong. First thing in the morning you can still catch a few on top as well as catch some good Smallmouth Bass around the pea gravel points and flats. Once the sun gets up high you need to drop down deeper and fish the drop shot rig for Kentucky Spotted Bass. You’ll want to throw a jointed Redfin or Zara Spook for the top water and a tube or jig for the Smallmouth. We’ve been drop shotting night crawlers for the Kentucky’s but a small 4 inch finesse worm will work also. The White Bass have stopped schooling on top as the shad have retreated to deeper water as the water Temperature has warmed into the 80s. The best way to find them is to troll around watching your locator looking for the schools of shad and fish.
There is a lot of boat traffic on the lake so get out early to avoid the crowds.
If your interested in a guided fishing trip I do have a few openings so give me a call and we’ll set up a time to go.
Till next time Good Fishin’
