Fishing tips

What’s biting this week?

June 20, 2014 

•  Largemouth Bass: Fair to good. There are two main patterns for catching bass on Lake Wylie right now. First, the offshore bite is pretty good, as is characteristic early in the season before fish have been hammered for months. 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 20-30 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. But later in the summer as the fish become accustomed to the pressure, they will get finickier and schools will even relocate.
