Charlie Taylor's Fishing Report - November 24, 2017

On Lake Gaston, live bait and deep-trolling are producing some good striper catches, although the fish are running small.

White perch continue to be caught, jigging in the creeks with Hopkins Shorties. Walleye are taken along with the white perch.

Crappie anglers are taking good stringers of fish on live minnows, as the schools suspend over the creek channels.

Bass fishing is so-so, with fish being caught on long points in 10-14 feet of water, on crankbaits and Carolina rigs. Lots of patience is required.
