Charlie Taylor's Fishing Report- June 16, 2017

Bass fishing is good, with Carolina rigged Zoom lizards and centipedes, in pumpkin pepper colors, taking good fish off the points. Don't neglect topwater baits in the fringe of grass on the points. Docks are always good on this lake, as are bridge crossings, particularly when water is being drawn.

Plastic baits, spinnerbaits and shad-imitating crankbaits are the most productive lures. Lots of bass are being caught from willow grass beds on the main lake and larger creeks. Best techniques are frogs and toads on top and flipping plastic worms and creatures baits in the middle of the grass.

Bream are being caught on live crickets, while cut shad baits are taking catfish.
