Charlie Taylor's Fishing Report - April 21, 2017

Fishing has been good this past week. Striper fishermen are catching fish on live shad and bucktails cast up on the bank in the upper end of the lake, near Kerr Dam.

Catfish action is good for anglers fishing live shad on or near the bottom.

Largemouth bass action is good for anglers fishing the spawning beds. Topwater lures, crankbaits and swimbaits are accounting for a few good fish in the back ends of main lake coves. Creature baits and soft stick baits are taking bass from the walkways at the rear of boat docks.
