I was just wondering if this is the main lake humps that most people fish for Sand Bass. I would like my daughter to have a good time and get on some fish.

There are some down by the dam too. Only fish I've been able to catch have been trolling. Near some points on ledges. 18 feet of water.


Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, he'll be gone every weekend.

Thanks! Never tried trolling. I’ve only had a boat 3 years still new to lake maps and other methods

Yep those are the mid lake humps that are usually mentioned. The point of contour lines nw of those is a good place to look also.

It seems that jigging is best earlier in the year and trolling in the late summer. The white bass seem to be really spread out right now. We were catching a lot of them in May by jigging. You might try hiring a white bass guide on Eagle Mountain to learn more about how to find and catch them. There are some really good guides in our area.

There are several other good structures. I'll note them on a map and post later.

Where have all the sandbass gone? I haven't found them for several weeks. Tried all the normal spots in the lower lake (dam humps, points, and dropoffs).

The sandbass on Eagle mountain are always hard to catch this time of the year. They are moving a 100 MPH so hard to get on them and stay on them. Many years ago this was not the case . Been fishing EM for over 50 years and it has changed a lot.

Sparton31086: Here are the spots I have caught white bass on at Eagle Mountain Lake.

The main dam area: The mid-lake points is the spot you already identified. The point just west of the dam is called Baptist Point. Set up on it in 10 fow. Then cast down the slopes to north, NW and NE and work your lure up the slope on the bottom back to the boat. The hump out from the dam is especially good on the east edges of it. Look for fish on the bottom at the top of the drop-offs. Note the small canyon on the east edge of the northern portion. It was years before I realized there was more structure north of the canyon. That part is especially good when lake levels are down a couple of feet or more.

The south end: These red marked spots are shallow (10 to 15 fow) points. Look for fish on the bottom.

Pelican Island area: The green circled area is where they school on the surface early in the morning. The red circled areas are where I catch them on the bottom. They are not all along these drop-offs - you have to search for them along these areas.

North of Pelican Island: These red marked spots are shallow (10 to 15 fow) points/humps to search for fish on the bottom:

If you do hire a guide. I’d recommend Johnny from the post above. He’s been fishing the lake since the time dinosaurs roamed, is very knowledgeable, is willing to share everything he knows about sand bass with you and even invented the old ugly slab a lure that it seems like 90% of people use on the lake for sand bass jiggin.

Ask him about his educational trips, that’s what I ended up doing to become a better sand bass fisherman
