Carters Lake Fishing Report – September 2007

GON Staff | September 1, 2007

All boat ramps are closed due to low water. Every ramp at Carters is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ramp, and the corps has closed all ramps. There is no ramp access to the lake.
Temp: 89 degrees. Clarity: Slight stain.

Bass: Good. Buddy Callahan at Bart’s Bait & Tackle said the bass fishing is at its turning point. “Fishing will steadily improve this month,” said Buddy. “You won’t have to rely on dependable plastic worms for a while. This month, topwater returns, along with crankbaits and spinnerbaits. My Thursday-night tournament was won with four fish that went 10 pounds; it was anchored by a 4.4-lb spot.”

Stripers: Good. “Stripers will begin to feed better this month,” said Buddy. “Throw Red Fins and Spooks early, then downline and troll in the middle of the day. Stripers will remain down the lake for the most part until water temperatures begin to fall.”
