Charlie Taylor's Fishing Report - December 1, 2017

Excellent crappie fishing is reported in Lake Gaston. Most of the catches are being taken from schools suspended over creek channels around mid lake. Small minnows and tiny jigs are the key.

Some success by striper fishermen using live bait and large bucktails in the main river channel and below Gaston dam. One report had large school of stripers in Pea Hill Creek, taking jigging spoons.

Some good white perch are reported from the main lake and from Pea Hill Creek.

Throughout the entire state, waters are seasonally cold. All anglers and boaters are cautioned to be extremely careful and WEAR YOUR LIFEJACKETS. Hypothermia is the leading cause of water-related deaths during this season of the year.
