Fishing has been very slow the last 2 weeks of August. I am not going to use the words like "excellent" and "great" in my report when the fishing is tough. Fishing is not what it should be this time of year. The fish are scattered around .
As shown by the picture on the left Smaller stripers and spots are holding on 40 to 60 foot bottoms, points, and humps and have been biting. The leadcore bite was slow on these fish.
The lead core / u rig bite seems to be non-existent but trolling you might pick up a straggler. By no means is anyone on the lake is killing them but people are catching them but you really got to work for them and cover a lot of water
If you catch one of these fish down so deep be prepared to "deflate" the fish otherwise they will float and die.
I plan on updating this report right after the visit from Lee. Hopefully we will get 6+ inches of rain which will lower the lake temp and increase the Oxygen and shake things up.
Have a safe holiday weekend on the Lake and checkout out fall special
