Table Rock Lake Fishing Report August 21, 2018

Table Rock Lake is about a foot and a quarter below normal pool.  The water temps are in the low 8os.  The fishing remains good but you have to move around to find the active fish.  The main pattern is fishing crawlers around 25 to 30 feet deep.  We have been catching some smallmouth on a half ounce jig dragged on the ridges about 20 to 30 feet deep.  We have also been catching some swimming a grub in the same areas.  We have been using a 1/4 oz. head on the grub and keeping the boat in about 30 to 35 feet.  Cast up shallower and count down to 5 and start a slow retrieve back.  The bites aren’t hard the rod just starts to load up.  I’ve also been catching some fish in the coves right now.  We have caught some on a Whopper Plopper and a Squarebill crankbait. The spinnerbait should become a factor soon as the water starts to cool.

 Till next time    Good Fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report July 16, 2018

Table Rock Lake level is 916 and the water temps are in the upper 80s. There is still a top water bite first thing in the morning.  Somedays are better than others but if you have shad in the area you can probably count on some surface action.  When the sun gets up we have been dropping nightcrawlers down to catch suspended bass.  Use your electronics to find them suspended in 20 to 40 feet of water. You may have the boat in 100 foot but they are out there looking for a meal.  They seem to bite better in the 20 to 25 foot range.  Get your crawler down there and you’ll see them come up from 40 foot to take the bait.  We are also catching some big bluegill as well as a few white bass.  The fishing has been good this summer, so if your looking to get out and catch some fish, give me a call.

Till next time   Good Fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report July 1, 2018

Table Rock Lake is at normal summertime pool.  The water temps a hanging in the mid 80s with the water clarity at 10 to 12 feet.  Fishing is still good for Kentucky Bass with a few smallmouth and largemouth mixed in.  If your out at first light, we do have a topwater bite still going on.  It doesn’t last long but you can still get some on mainlake points.  I’m not finding a good bottom bite so once the sun gets up I am fishing for suspended fish.  Keep your eye on your locator and just keep moving around all the way out to 80 foot.  You will see them suspending down around the 25 foot mark.  I have been dropping nightcrawlers down to catch these fish.  As the sun gets higher, the fish that are in the deep trees start  getting active. Again I have been dropping crawlers down to catch these fish. If your out in the late afternoon, I believe you could probably catch them on the bottom as this is when they are generating water.  I just haven’t been out that late to check.

Till next time   Good Fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report June 10, 2018

Table Rock Lake is at 917 which is the new normal for summertime.  The water temperature is starting out at 82 degrees.  Topwater fishing remains good.  The first hour and a half of daylight remains the best but you can catch them throughout the day.  A lot of fish are up in the water column and will hit a Zara Spook Jr or the number 90 Whopper Plopper.  We are catching a lot of fish on dropshot and with nightcrawlers in the 20 to 30 foot range on the points and long ridges that run out in the lake.  We are also catching them over the deep treetops.  We have about 12 feet of visibility around the damn area. Something we haven’t seen in a few years so I believe the fishing will get better as more fish move out to their summer areas.  Fishing is good on Table Rock Lake right now so give me a call to set up a fishing trip.

          Table Rock Lake Fishing Report May 24, 2018

Table Rock Lake is 1 1/2 feet above power pool. Water temps are in the upper 70s to low 80s. The fishing is very good. We are catching a lot of topwater fish first thing in the morning. Whopper Ploppers, Spooks and Wake Baits are doing the best. We are catching all species of Bass including White Bass. When the sun gets up and the topwater stops we have been throwing grubs on a 1/4 oz jighead slow rolling them and catching a lot of Smallmouth. Keep an eye on your electronics and when you see a school of fish on it ,drop a spoon down and you’ll catch some White Bass. We are also starting to catch some Goggle Eye while throwing the grub. Everyone have a safe and happy Holiday weekend.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report May 5, 2018

Table Rock Lake is 2 1/2 feet above normal pool.  The water temperature is starting out in the low 60s in the morning.  The Bass are in all stages of the spawn. We have a wave that is done spawning, some on the nests and a wave of fish getting ready to move in to spawn.  The topwater bite has started to pick up. we are catching them on a Zara Spook or a jointed rapala slowly worked on top.  That best bite is first thing in the morning during the shad spawn but you can catch them on top throughout the day with the right conditions.  My best bite is fishing grubs on a 1/4 oz head on the mainlake points targeting the fish that are moving in and the fish that are starting to move out of the spawning areas.  I’m still catching some on a Carolina rigged centipede but have been working the grub more. The fishing on Table Rock is good right now so if your interested in getting in on the action, give me a call.

 

 Till next time   Good Fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report April 22, 2018

Table Rock Lake is at normal pool and the water temperature is in the low 50s.  The fishing has been up and down with this crazy weather we have been having.  They are calling for more stable temperatures so that should get the bite more consistent.  You can catch fish on the main lake, in the pockets, in the coves and in the creeks. Our main baits have been 4 inch swimbaits on an underspin and throwing a Carolina rigged Zoom centipede.  There has been some big tournaments lately and they were catching them on Jerkbaits,  Crankbaits,  Spinnerbaits, and Jigs.  There has been a wave of fish move up to spawn and I believe a bigger wave is setting up to move toward the end of the week closer to the full moon.  Fishing is about to get real good real soon. With stable weather this lake is getting ready to live up to it’s reputation as one of the best Bass lakes in the country.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report  April, 3, 2018

Table Rock Lake is about 3 1/2 feet above normal pool. The water temperature is in the low 50s. The fish are starting to move up shallow in anticipation for the spawning season. You can catch them on a variety of baits and locations. In the coves and pockets we are catching them swimming a grub or underspin with a small swimbait attached, a squarebill crankbait and a few on a spinnerbait. On the main points in the creeks we are catching them on a crankbait and a carolina rigged centepede. The fish on the mainlake gravel are just starting to show up and that bite will get stronger as we get further in the Spring. We are catching them on Crankbaits and Carolina rigged centepedes. With the spawn just around the corner please practice catch and release so we can have as good a spawn as possible.
Till next time Good Fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report August 31,2017

 

Table Rock Lake level is 916.6. The water temperature is hanging around 80 degrees. There is a good bite going on first thing in the morning. We are catching most of the fish splitshotting night crawlers. The fish are hanging right off the bottom in 18 to 25 feet of water. After the sun gets up and the bottom bite slows, you need to move out over deeper water as the fish will move out and suspend. We have been catching Kentucky spotted bass, and a few Walleye and Catfish along with some big bluegill. There are a few top water fish to be had but you have to be right on the spot as they will go right back down after they catch the shad they are chasing. With the holiday weekend here, the lake will be busy so get out early and let the pleasure boaters have the lake in the afternoon.

Till next time    Good Fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report July 22, 2017

 

 

 

Table Rock Lake is about 5 feet over normal pool.  The water temperature is  hanging around 90 degrees.  The fishing seems to change from day to day.  One day is real good and the next you seem to be scratching to catch them.  A good day is catching between 20 and 30 fish and a tougher day is between 15 and 20.  We are doing best splitshotting nightcrawlers in the 18 to 25 foot range.  I’m seeing some fish down deeper but cannot seem to get them to bite. They seem to be coming off the bottom and suspending in that 18 to 25 foot range.  My guess is that is probably where the thermocline is set up.  We are catching a lot of Kentucky Spotted Bass, Smallmouth Bass, a lot of BIG bluegill and an occasional Walleye.  If your brave enough to stay out until they start generating at the dam (which is usually in the afternoon) I would think they would start feeding real good off of the bottom.  Stay safe and stay hydrated.

Till next time    Good fishin’
