    LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN 1.8 FEET, CLEAR, 50íS


    Bass fishing is fair. The weather is still taking us on a roller coaster ride with cold winds and colder days mixed together all through the week. The rivers are still good bass producers however, the bass aren't really big in size. Smaller spotted bass with a few large mouth are being caught in Beaverdam Creek, Rocky River and up on the northern end of the Savannah River. Carolina Rigs can be found in just about every boat along with a couple of deeper diving crank baits and drop shot rigs. Submerged stumps can be found in small patches all over the lake. You can find these by using your Navionics lake map and the Lowrance Down Scan technology can see fish laying on the bottom. Start off by fishing a Rapala DT10 over the tops of these stumps and then follow up with a Carolina Rig. On the channel ledges, break out a drop shot rig and downsize everything from your hook to your line. This includes whatever bait you choose as well. A slow presentation will be the key on whatever you do so be patient.


    We have another very cold weather front this week. Air temperatures are very cold and the fish will react to the weather by not feeding and relating the heavy structure with the very cold temperatures and high pressure. Any warm water you can find can have active bass. They still have to eat.

    Make Some Changes

    As the summer moves on to the fall of the year, changes may make you change, and some changes do not. The one big similarity of summer to fall is the mid-day heat leaving the water temperature to sore like its summer time. This factor alone makes early fall fishing extremely... read more
