Table Rock Lake Fishing Report May 23, 2013

Table Rock Lake Fishing is on.

A nice catch of Smallmouth Bass

Fishing is hot on Table Rock Lake


With the holiday weekend upon us, Table Rock Lake Fishing is very good. The water temperature is hanging around 70 degrees and the lake level is up a foot and a half. We have a full moon approaching and another wave of spawning fish have moved up. This wave of spawners is not as big as the last but I have noticed more Smallmouth Bass on nests than Largemouth or Kentuckies. Fish can be caught on just about anything you like to throw as long as the conditions warrant. If you have wind a lot of the power baits will produce but if it’s sunny and calm you have to downsize and work a little deeper unless you are targeting the spawners. This week we have caught fish on topwater baits, crankbaits, shakey heads, carolina rigs, jigs and spinnerbaits.
The White Bass have even showed for the holiday weekend. They can show up anytime and anywhere. We have caught them on topwater when they surface and with white grubs when they are down. We have seen them in mainlake pockets, points and out in the middle so have something ready because you just never know when they will show up.
As always on a holiday weekend, get out early because the boat traffic will chase you off the lake by noon. Everyone have a safe and fun weekend.

Till’ next time Good Fishin’
