June 2020

The early summer transition has absolutely begun to take place. While the fish aren’t out on the deepest structure in the lake, they have made a significant move to the 1st major break. Depending on the water clarity, I would focus on the 15-20 ft depth range, near isolated patches of rock. Of course you can always catch fish relatively shallow, but I believe the quality bite is out a bit deeper. You can’t go wrong with a shad colored deep diving crank bait and a carolina rigged lizard or ribbon tail worm, in some variation of watermelon or green pumpkin. Also, in the heat of the day, you might wacky rig a finesse worm on light spinning tackle and target docks with plenty of shade.
