WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 5.8 FEET, CLEAR & LOW 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. The largemouth and the spots are moving into the pockets as the water cools down. They are chasing shad and feeding up for winter. Look for them in the backs of the creeks at 5 to 15 feet of water up in the main lake coves and use shad imitation lures. The large mouth and spots are starting to bunch up on medium to deep road beds in 15 to 20 feet of water. Carolina rigged worms in green, black, and blue and Hopkins spoons are the best baits and fishing slow is the best method.

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 5.8 FEET, CLEAR & LOW 60’S

Bass fishing will slow down for the weekend with the cold weather but will rebound next week. Focus on shallow pockets with cover and bait and find the warmest water in the coves. Fish the trick worms and Super Flukes slowly in the early morning late evening around shallow flats and shoal markers. Then use the 3/8 ounce Strike King spinner bait and a Bandit 200 crank bait in the Sexy Shad color. This week be sure to cover a lot of new water around the mid lake area from the railroad trestle down. Spots are holding on the points and bridge columns around the 8 to 12 feet deep. To just catch fish, use the 1/8 ounce Shaky Head rigged with a Zoom finesse worm in some color of green. Have a ½ ounce spoon ready and work the bait right of the bottom. This technique can fire up any school of bass.

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 5.8 FEET, CLEAR & HIGH 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. The cold fronts and high pressure will slow the fish some. The fish are scattered and they are moving all over the lake so you have to move and fish a lot of places to catch them. Look for largemouth and spots on points, road beds and back in the coves. Start using the crank baits as the fish chase shad back in the coves later in the day. Most of the lake is clear with a little stain in the rivers. A Texas rigged Zoom U Tale worm fished in brush piles or on long rock points will bring a few bites. Work the bait slow and be a line watcher. A few anglers are using the light Alabama rig with all shad bodied lead heads mid lake. Carolina rigged worm fishing the deeper end of long points or under water islands will also work for a few bites. Look for the bait fish in this area before fishing. Make sure to work both sides of points to find out where the fish are holding. As the water temperature starts to cool the fishing will only get better.
