Carters Lake Fishing Report – June 2007
Carters: Level: 4 feet low. Temp: 74-76 degrees. Clarity: Algae bloom has begun.
Bass: Fair. Buddy Callahan says after a slow mid-May tournament weights had rebounded nicely. He said an 11-lb. bag average is winning his four-fish-limit tourneys. The five-fish-limit tourneys are averaging 16- to 18-lb. winning bags. A 4-lb. spotted bass is the normal big-fish winner right now. Most spots are in postspawn mode and beginning to feed. “Anglers should target brush and main-lake points in 15 to 25 foot depths. Concentrate on soft plastics, especially tube baits,” said Buddy. He said some bigger bass are hitting big crankbaits and spinnerbaits in the late evening. Anglers should use watermelon-candy worms, green-pumpkin tubes and black spinnerbaits with big, single Colorado blades.
Stripers: Fair. Buddy said some fish are still being caught mid-river, but most fish are being caught in the back of main-lake creeks. Anglers are using planer boards and flatlines with big gizzard shad and bream as bait.
Walleye: Fair. These fish are starting to show up on main-lake points. Anglers should fish late evening and after dark using minnows behind rigs with beads and blades.
