It's time... Sepetmber officially kicks off the fall live bait season. The young shad are beginning to school in large numbers, and most are now large enough to be collected in a 3/8" mesh cast net. Fish of all types are starting to congergate below the dams, mouths of creeks, and large main lake flats gorging on the young shad. All you need for fast fall action is a cast net, live bait tank, and some medium action spinning tackle. Catfish and white bass will be in their largest concentrations in the tailraces. For largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass, they will be anywhere the bait is. When the dams are gnerating focus your attention to structure out in the current flow, and eddy pockets just off the main current seam. When current is not running, fish tend to swim in more open water in the main lake. This month is trophy catfish and great multi species action on both Wilson and Pickwick Lakes. Get out and enjoy!!!
