Lake Burton Fishing Report – December 2022

GON Staff | November 28, 2022

Burton: Level: 3 feet low and dropping. Temp: 59 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Tyler Clore, of Georgia Cast & Blast, reports, “With the fairly mild November, we have been catching some fish up schooling in the morning on a white Super Fluke and a white SuperFish swimbait head with a 3-inch Keitech paddletail swimbait. We have been finding these bass on the humps first thing in the morning. As the day goes on, most of our fish come from brushpiles 20 to 25 feet deep using a SuperFish underspin with a white Super Fluke. On slower days, we have used shaky heads with green-pumpkin-seed finesse worms in the brush. Use your sonar to see if the fish will come up higher in the water column to feed or if they want to stay tight to the bottom.”

Multiple Species: Guide Tyler Clore, of Georgia Cast & Blast, reports, “We have been catching some quality yellow perch and crappie dropping medium minnows and throwing white curly tail jigs in 20 feet of water on the sides of humps. For trout, fish the channel in front of the dam with live bluebacks deep for the larger trout. Keep an eye out first thing in the morning for the smaller trout to school. The best way to catch the schooling trout is making long casts and cranking a Rapala CountDown through the schools. I prefer the black back with white sides and belly.”
