What’s biting this week?

February 7, 2014 

• Largemouth bass: Fair. Fish are in a typical winter pattern, and the bite should get better and better unless temperatures increase and disrupt things. Fishing grubs such as Yamamato single tail grubs behind a 1/4 or 3/16 ounce jighead around channel swings, points and at the mouths of creeks is producing, and on sunny days fish will move onto flats to feed. They will still stay near the creek channels, though. 20 feet of water is a good starting depth to target, but the key is finding the bait (schools of shad). Anglers are also having success throwing Alabama rigs in the same areas, and when water muddies up square-billed crankbaits, spinnerbaits and rattling baits are a good bet. As always in the winter on Lake Wylie fish can be caught near the lower and upper hot holes using a variety of shallow water techniques.
