Charlie Taylor's Fishing Report - July 7, 2017

Lots of bass being caught by patient anglers fishing Carolina-rigged lizards in 12-20 feet of water. The fish are holding tight to structure. Boat docks and submerged wood cover on the lower part of the lake are the better pattern, particularly early and late in the day. Topwater baits, fished in 6-8 feet of water early and late, are also taking some good fish.

Striper fishing is fair for anglers fishing live shad at night. The Eaton Ferry Bridge area is best.

Catfish are hungry and biting well at night, on cut bait and nightcrawlers.
