Lake Burton Fishing Report – October 2022

GON Staff | September 29, 2022

Burton: Level: 0.6 feet below 1865. Temp: 74 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Tyler Clore, of Georgia Cast & Blast, reports, “With the lake turning over, fishing has been hit and miss. We have had the most luck using a drop shot in 20- to 25-foot brushpiles. We have been rigging the drop shot with a morning-dawn Roboworm. Also, we have been catching them on the deeper ends of points with a Spro McStick jerkbait and a Mini Me spinnerbait. I prefer a white spinnerbait with double willowleaf blades. As the turnover ends and water quality stabilizes, look for fish to be chasing pods of bait as they fatten up for the winter. I prefer throwing the McStick or a white fluke into the schooling fish. We have caught a few trout deep in the channel off the points using blueback herring. October is a great month to fish. The water has cooled down and the fish are feeding for winter.”
