Very Good !!. . The live-bait bite is still the best bite going right now. . We are still catching very good numbers stripers, hybrids and White Bass . The numbers are starting slow down some because the dissolved oxygen level is dropping fast. All of the fish seem to be within two mile of the dam. Concentrate your efforts from the mouth of Clear Creek to Clarks Creek. Once you find the fish, start the morning fishing live shad on downlines at 24 feet. This can be a good bite if you're on feeding fish, but fresh baits is the key, change your baits often Once the live bait bite slows down, switch to trolling umbrella rigs. I have been having most of my success pulling nine 1/2-oz. white bucktails with chartreuse trailers about 110 feet behind the boat, which puts his rigs about 24 feet deep. Also keep your topwater baits ready in case any schooling fish come up. They'll hit a popping cork, fluke or Sammy, but I prefers the biggest white Rooster Tail he can find. The secret to getting bit is to fish with light line (6-lb. test) and to retrieve your bait as fast as you can crank it in. In these conditions it's important to get your fish back in the water quickly if you want to release it. Keep your camera ready because a quick release can mean the difference between a dead fish and one that swims away.We also suggested riding back over the area you just fished and keeping any floaters .Striper Soup has plenty of bait in stock for those of you that don't want to get to the lake at 4am... Our boats are taking know less then 80 baits out for our four hour trips. Fresh bait is a must right now...
The big fish bite is Very Good. We have been catching stripers up to 24 lbs And Hybrids weighing close to 13 lbs this past month. Down Lining Shad at 30 -50 feet has been our best over all bite. The mouth of most of the major creeks on the south end of the lake are holding stripers. And the backs of the Creeks, main lake points and humps are holding the Hybrids. Fresh bait is the key to catching line sides on Carter. Be-sure to carry plenty of bait with you.
We are also catching a few fish on lead core. I am running a 2 oz jig with a white trailer. 7-9 colors depending on the day at 2.9 miles and hour....
