Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – November 2023

GON Staff | October 26, 2023

Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.6 feet below 521. Temp: 72 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Kyle Welcher, Professional Fisherman (see November Map of the Month article) said to fish buzzbaits, small crankbaits like the Rapala OG mini 4 and jigs on seawalls with rocks. Target the biggest secondary points in coves and creeks to catch bass ambushing shad that are moving into the creeks this month. Also look for spotted bass suspended under bait balls in the mouths of ditches and catch them on Damiki jigs and spoons. Fish your baits in front of the fish just under bait balls even if they are not on the bottom. Tyler Morgan with Summerland Outdoors said doncentrate on Halawka Creek And fish areas with shad balls, casting square bill crankbait, spinnerbait and bladed jig.  Cast to seawalls, docks, grass, rocks and any wood cover on the bank.  A buzzbait will also draw bites from quality fish.  If there is some wind, cast a spinnerbait on wind blown banks. On calm days stick with a bladed jig. After the sun gets up, docks with brush in four to six feet of water are key targets the last half the day. Fish them with a jig. As the water cools toward the end of the month you can’t go wrong casting a shaky head jig with a Trick worm to cover.  The fish often get on an “in-between” pattern and the shaky head will catch numbers as well as big fish.
