What a great morning at the Lake. Caught 40 and had several good keepers. The bite was on using several different patterns. Fishing report fish shallow and use soft platics. The top water bite is improving ever day, with the water warming it’s up to 72.
Even with all the rain and the muddy water the River is fired up. Hit the back water areas with creature baits and crankbaits. The water temp is hitting the 70 degree mark and the top water bite will fire up.
Bull Shoals Lake
April is one of the great months to be on the water. I spent a week fishing Bull Shoals last week and it was incredible if you have not fished that lake you need to. It has everything you could ask for and the fishing is fantastic. The fish are in full swing for the spawn with beds everywhere. Target them and throw soft plastics, or fish in the brush with wacky rigs or flukes. When you get to the back of a pocket pick up a top water bait and hang on. The fish are also on bluff walls throw crankbaits or spinnerbaits.
It’s time to get on the water, bass are shallow throw spinner baits, worms, and crankbaits. The water is still dirty on the upper end of the lake but fish moved up and spawning. Water temp is 59-64. The lower end is clear. Smallmouth are in the full swing.
