Paradise PFA Fishing Report – September 2007

GON Staff | September 1, 2007

Paradise PFA: Level: Most lakes remain 2 to 3 feet below full pool. Temp: 84-85 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Fair. Fish black Texas-rigged worms just off the edges of the weed lines early in the morning. Work it slow, and give the lure plenty of time to reach the bottom. Switch to crankbaits by mid morning, and concentrate on the deeper water down to about 6 to 8 feet. This has been a good tactic for fishing lakes Bobben, Patrick and Russell. Good catches of smaller bass have been reported in these three lakes. Water temperatures should gradually start to drop, and bass action should shift mostly to shoreline cover. Spinnerbaits and topwater lures typically work best after water temps drop into the 70s.

Bream: Good. Bluegill are being caught on red wigglers and crickets in Horseshoe lakes 3, 4 and 5, and in Lake Patrick. Drop a cricket into shoreline cover and around docks, particularly during early morning periods. Fish in 4 to 6 feet of water with the bait suspended just off the bottom. The east side of Patrick and along the dam of Horseshoe 3 have been good.

Catfish: Fair. Paradise, Horseshoe 1, 2 and Beaver lakes have been the best for catfish in the 1- to 2-lb. range. Catfish are being caught using mullet gut or liver.

Note: Special kids’ events will be held September 22. Call (229) 553-4792.
