S CAROLINA: Spoons (Fire Tiger & Silver/Blue) are Good this Time of Year

Trout: (Slow to fair)
Captain Steve Pietrykowski reports that a few trout are moving shallower as water temperatures cool, but the best pattern is still fishing in 65-80 feet. Spoons are a good choice at this time of year, and fire tiger and silver/blue are good colors.

Black Bass:  (Fair)
Captain Pat Bennett reports that as air and water temperatures drop the fishing is improving. Early and late try topwater lures such as Spooks and Jitterbugs around long points. Also target bass related to shoreline cover proximate to deep water, where they can be caught on shakey head worms, Carolina rigs and spinnerbaits. The first drop-off is often strong. Fish can also be caught on soft plastics fish around bluff walls. Many bass continue to be out in deep, open water following roaming schools of baitfish, but many of these bait schools should make their way up the rivers and creeks as the fall progresses. Water levels continue to drop, so be careful putting in and running on the lake.
