Lake Burton Fishing Report – November 2019

GON Staff | October 26, 2019

Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: 69 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “The bass bite has been good the last couple of days. We have caught some really nice largemouth in the backs of the creeks. Small topwater baits have been working best. We have good success throwing a small chrome Heddon Super Spook. The retrieve has been a little slower than normal and seems to get bit on the pause. Look for these fish to feed for several hours during the day over the next week or so. The spotted bass bite has been decent on shallow points near the main lake. Five-inch jerkbaits have been working best. Try fishing 8- to 18-foot depths for these spots. Look for the bass bite to increase significantly.”

Trout: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “We have been catching most of our fish on medium shiners downlined approximately 20 feet deep. Look for this bite to gradually get better. Some of the mature females are headed to spawn and will feed aggressively afterward. The trout bite will get better as the water temps cool into the lower 60s.”

Walleye: Capt. Wes Carlton reports, “With water headed toward the lower 60s, the walleye bite should be firing up real soon. These fish seem to show up every year in and around the bank lines as the water gets cooler.”
