Water Temp: 49 deg
Clarity: clear
Level: down 6ft

The Bass bite has been on fire the last week or so. We have been catching slot of fish on top water plugs. Lucky Craft Sammy’s have been working best. We have been reeling these with an extremely fast action. We have caught some toads (Spotted Bass in the 5kbs range). Look for this bite to transition into a deeper crank bait or spoon bite over the next few weeks as we head into mid January. Look for most of the Spots to be on a 30 to 50ft bottom. They will come up sporadically during the day to feed on the surfacing Blue Back Herring.
The Brown Trout have been biting decent lately. We have been catching slot of smaller fish trolling Ugly Ducklings in the 18 to 29ft depths. The bigger fish seem to be still holding in the creeks over a 10 to 15 ft bottom. Look for these fish to fire up in January. They will show themselves throughout the day feeding on the small Herring fry this time of year. Try matching the hatch with small spinner type baits (Rooster Tails or Blue Fox). These fish like a speedy bait and will react to a quick retrieve. The Brown Trout bite gets better and better throughout January and February !
Good Luck!
