Lake Chatuge Fishing Report February 2018
Chatuge: Level: 7.3 feet low. Temp: 44-46 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports, “The fishing has been tough with the crazy cold weather we’ve had the past month. There have been some pockets that have frozen over, and there has been a shad kill. I’ve been starting my mornings fishing deep, rocky banks and seawalls with a Float-n-Fly. Another new bait to try with the water this cold is a Z-Man Ned Rig. There is still some deep structure in the lake and laydowns that you can throw a jig and a shaky head in green pumpkin around. If it’s a warm, sunny day, I’m going to throw an A-rig around docks leading into small, rocky spawning areas, which will warm up faster during the day. The same areas are also good this time of year for a Strike King Red Eye Shad, 4XD crankbait and a jerkbait. With your electronics, you will see fish suspending and on the bottom. You can target these fish with a spoon and VMC moon-eye jig with a Tiny Fluke. On Sept. 20-23, Lake Chatuge will be hosting the Bassmaster Angler of the Year Tournament. The top-50 best pros of 2018 will be competing on a lake in north Georgia.”
