Lay Lake Summertime Bass Fishing

Capt. Reed Montgomery
June 20, 2013
Birmingham - Freshwater Fishing Report

With the first day of summer (in late June), showing 90 degree air temperatures and water temps that have soared into the upper 80's one things for sure in Alabama. It will remain hot until Fall shows cooler water temps!

Anglers can resort to night fishing, or fishing the mid-to-back ends of major feeder creeks or fish the cooler water in the lakes headwaters, found right below upper Logan Martin lake dam. Or fish deep water.

Great spots and times for finding cooler water temperatures and more active bass!

Although many anglers fish deep in the summer months there are always some bass shallow in Lay lakes very weedy waters.

Lures like buzz baits, imitation frogs, spinner baits, chatterbaits, weedless spoons, soft plastic shad imitations, floating worms and Senkos(all rigged weedless) are also good for those slow, often sluggish summertime bass.

Other good lures for fishing both during the day and at night in and around Lay lakes often thick and matted weeds are jig combos, worms of all sizes, creature baits, including big Texas-rigged worms, lizards and crayfish imitations, and beaver type plastics.

Good Luck and always call on Reeds Guide Service...first! For day of night fishing Lay lake, or any Alabama lake...this summer season or year round!
