Lake Chatuge Fishing Report – June 2023

GON Staff | May 24, 2023

Chatuge: Level: 0.9 above 1925. Temp: 70-72 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Eric Welch, of Welch’s Guide Service, reports, “Fishing has been good. The fish are done spawning and have moved out to their summer areas. I’m starting to find fish out in ditches and offshore structures while using my electronics. To catch these fish, I’m throwing a shaky head, jig, drop shot and swimbaits. This month you should start seeing fish chasing bait and blowing up. I always keep at least two topwater baits tied on and on the front deck so I can get to them quickly. I prefer a Berkley Cane Walker and a Strike King Sexy Dawg Jr. Now, depending on the size of the baitfish, I will also have a Strike King Sexy Swimmer on a 1/4-oz. jig head to cast where the fish have blown up and won’t hit a topwater bait. If you like fishing banks, laydowns and points, try throwing a shaky head, Texas rig and a drop shot. Good luck.”
