Lake Wedowee At A Glance April/May Fishing Advice

Fishing Advice

By: Brian Morris  Fishing Guide

This time of the year expect the bass to be shallow!!! The bass are moving to their spawning areas to reproduce those wonderful creatures that we all like to chase around the lake. I recommend fishing shallow flats and pockets using a spinner bait or shallow diving crank bait matching the colors per water clarity. Also I recommend using top water baits like a walking or a popping bait. If that doesn't work, slow down and move out to the points and fish plastics, a Jig head supporting a finesse worm or a Carolina rig, it’s hard to go wrong with the color of green. The crappie should be finished spawning, so in early April focus on shallow timber pockets and any piece of wood lying in the water. It’s very common to catch 20 or so off one piece of wood in the matter of minutes. I use a 1/16 oz jig head, mostly with a 2 inch curly tail in various colors, but you can’t go wrong with black and chartreuse. Hope these tips will help you land the big one. God bless and good fishing!!
