Sportsman’s Lodge South End Fishing Report
Drifting with spinners has been reeling in the fish this week in 25’-32 depths however don’t count out the shallows 10’-16’ too. Hammered gold/pink spinners tipped with crawlers or leeches in the mud, rocks and sand. Jigging has also had some success in the deeper depths (25’-32’) with gold jigs being the key. Many 16”-17” fish are coming in with a mix of bigger fish as well. The water surface temperature is hovering around 72 degrees. Pro tip of the week – Don’t count out the shallows. Try the sand bars and shallow rock piles!
