Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – November 2009
Bartletts Ferry: Level: 6.8 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 70s. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Fair. Fluctuations in the water level have the fish and the fishermen confused, said Dennis Hudson. In the rapidly moving water, there has been a pretty good crankbait bite, though. The fish are keying heavily on shad, and you just have to find them. Dennis said he found the bass chasing shad shallow in the very backs of the pockets one day, then the next time he went out, they were on the main-lake points. Wind helps either bite. In the pockets or on the points, Dennis likes a small crankbait like a Rebel Wee-R. Shad colors work best, but a little color thrown in doesn’t hurt in the stained water. The fish feeding on the points have been right up on the bank. There has also been some schooling activity in the pockets and on secondary points. This pattern should improve as the water stabilizes some, and a jig bite should come into play.
