Carters Lake Fishing Report – December 2008

GON Staff | November 26, 2008

Carters: Level: 11.4 feet below full. Temp: Mid 50s. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Bass: Good. Bass have already gone deep, and some catches have been coming out of 60 feet of water on spoons. “The fishing has been good,” said Buddy Callahan at Bart’s Bait & Tackle. “It took 16 pounds to win over there Saturday.” Keep a spoon handy, and look for fish bunched in 25 to 60 feet of water as they relate to bait. Buddy likes a 3/4-oz. spoon in white or silver. “You can fish a worm on a lead-head that deep, but you’ll have to fish real slow,” Buddy said.

Excellent, according to Robert Eidson. The fish are on the south end of the lake from Harris Branch to the dam. “Use planer boards and flatlines. Go by Bart’s, and get a tank full of trout. Fish the main-lake humps or points, even some of the secondary points. You’ll see fish swirling early in the morning. Later in the morning the downrod bite is 20 to 30 feet deep on main-lake points and humps. The U-rig bite has been so good it’s sick — it’s been unreal over the points and humps.”
