Lake Chatuge Fishing Reports – March 2021

GON Staff | February 25, 2021

Chatuge: Level: 6.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 42-44 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports, “Fishing has been fair, the fish are still scattered. We’ve been catching fish 20 to 40 feet deep on long points and rocky banks. A lot of the fish we’ve been catching is with the Garmin LiveScope electronics using a drop shot with a 4.5-inch Roboworm, a 1/2-oz. spoon or a 2.75-inch swimbait on a 1/2-oz. Moon Eye jig. It’s just like playing a video game by watching the fish on the graph and stopping it at the depth they’re in and actually watching the fish hit your bait. We’ve also been catching fish on the Z-man Ned rig with a TRD worm, also a 3/16-oz. shaky head with a 5-inch Strike King finesse worm. On these warmer, sunny days there are some fish moving up around the pockets and in the backs of creeks. Try a swimbait, jerkbait or an A-rig. For cranking this time of year, I like using a Rapala DT6, a 1.5 square bill, or a 3.25-inch Strike King Rage Swimmer. The jig bite has been slow for me. Try a 3/8-oz. pb/j or a 3/8-oz. green pumpkin. Good luck.”
