What’s biting this week?

June 2, 2014 

Largemouth Bass: Fair. FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey reports that the shad spawn bite is dying down on Lake Wylie, although bass can still be caught sporadically that are concentrating on spawning shad. The offshore bite was starting to come on strong before the influx of water dirtied conditions, which in turn scatters out deeper fish. As the water clears, the offshore bite will get better, and schools of fish will be found around humps, deep main lake points, the areas where creek channels swing in front of points, and other depth changes. Lots of fish will be found in 20 to 30 feet of water, but some will be in 15 feet of water near shallower areas. Deep diving crankbaits, football jigs, Hopkins spoons, Ol’ Monster worms and other big baits will catch fish early in the season.
