Lake Burton Fishing Report – June 2022

GON Staff | May 26, 2022

Burton: Level: Full at 1865. Temp: 75 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Largemouth: Guide Tyler Clore reports, “With the bass spawn finishing up, fish the shallows early in the morning with topwater. I prefer a white, 1/4-oz. doubled-bladed buzzbait. I also have success around the treetops and boat docks with a Pop-R. A weightless, merthiolate Trick Worm just under the surface is also a good technique for largemouth.” 

Spotted Bass: Guide Tyler Clore reports, “Start early fishing points and humps with a white Zara Spook and a weightless white Super Fluke. Keep your eye out for fish schooling on the surface. As the sun gets higher, skip the Flukes under docks. This is also the month for the herring spawn. The bluebacks will spawn on solid surfaces. You will see them rolling along the seawalls. If you get close enough, they will actually follow the back of the boat around and will be so thick it blacks your graph out. You can fish white, double willowleaf spinnerbaits, Super Spooks, Super Flukes or jerkbaits around this spawn. You can literally throw anything that resembles a blueback into the massive schools of bait and catch fish. Keep an eye on your bait while you crank. You will feel the bait hitting your lure, and they will follow it all the way to the boat.”
