What’s biting this week?

December 13, 2013 

•  Catfish: Good. Captain Fishing for channels and blues has been strong over the past few weeks. Blues and channels are mixed together around the deep flats, but the blues seem to be especially keyed in on depth changes. They are holding in small schools near the river drops or humps with sharp inclines as well as at the mouths of major creeks bordering deep flats.

•  Largemouth bass: Slow. Bass fishing has been much tougher than usual and tournament weights have been way down on Lake Wylie. Fish are starting to get bunched up around deeper channel swings and in their traditional winter haunts, but basically they are still scattered and won’t tighten up until temperatures drop further. Bass are 100 percent focused on shad right now.
