Dale Hollow Lake Fishing Report / Forcast April 17, 2014

May is an exciting month on Dale Hollow Lake because it starts my post spawn season. This is a good time to catch nice bass around the willows on the flats and in the creeks around various types of structure. Flukes are a good bait of choice and also I use swim baits, jerk baits and spinner baits. We start night fishing mid to late May for small mouth and also walleye on the rock walls. This pattern usually starts in the month of May, which can be a good day or night pattern. Water temp will be running mid 60’s, possibly high 60’s during the month of May depending on our weather forecast. You can contact me for water temps throughout the month of May by giving me a call at 270-427-0419 or sending me an e-mail at bgentry0206@aol.com. Live minnows and shad are also a good bait choice during the month of May. We have had a few nice crappie being caught in the 25 to 30 foot depth range, they are starting their spawning in the willows during the month of early May.
