Fishing report Dale Hollow Lake March 19, 2014

The spring season is starting to play a major roll in the prespawn bite on Dale Hollow now. Our water temp is ranging from mid 40’s to low 50’s depending on location in the lake. Nice large mouth are being caught using Alabama rigs and swimbaits in locations like edges of flats, close to deep water and gradual tapered points. Nice fish have been caught at the ends of trees and backs of creeks in cover along the shore line in the 10-12 feet range. Small mouth bass have been following the deeper water at the edges of flats and suspending along rock walls next to pockets. Bait choice is Red Hotlips, swim baits prefer White or Shad patterns, Sexy Shad jerk baits are also working good. I like throwing jigs in heavy cover, such as lay downs in creeks and in the backs of creeks. Live bait can also be effective in the same type of areas. As the water warms a good strong bite should continue into the spawn.

If you have any questions please give me a call at 270-427-0419.

Thank you
