Lake Wedowee Fishing Advice June and July

Lake Wedowee Fishing Advice

By Brian Morris, Fishing Guide

Even though summertime is here and the lake traffic is heavy on the weekend's don't put them fishing rods up yet!!! The bass are coming off their post spawn mode and are feeding up on shad heading out to their summer homes. Majority of the bass are going to be in 10 to 30 ft .This time of the year is when your electronic sonar's are going to be your best friend finding the bait and fish. Early in the morning till around 8:00 a.m. I would recommend throwing top water, a popping or walking type bait, throwing it around steep bluff banks and sharp points. A lot of these fish will be suspended and come up exploding on the bait.
After the sun gets up I would recommend throwing a Carolina rig or a finesse type bait like a 4 to 6in plastic worm  green in color, working it around main lake points and deep structure. The crappie fishing can be really good all day as well, use your electronics to find them suspended around standing timber, underwater timber and deeper boat docks. Use a 1/16oz jig blue/white or chartreuse/black trolling and  also casting minnows work really well trolling them slow around deep brush 18 to 25ft.
Hope this information will help you land your next trophy. Good fishing and God bless.
