Fishing picked up significantly this week at South Lake

The fishing picked up significantly this week with the majority of both shore anglers and boaters getting into a solid bite all week. The water level continues to slowly drop but the fish certainly don't seem to mind. Big fish of the week was a 4.62lb 'bow caught by Leanna Bush of Temecula, CA on Garlic Powerbait.

All the normal stuff was working this week so the bait dunkers, lure tossers, trollers and jig/trout worm folks were all happy. Best lures of the week again were the red/gold or blue/silver Thomas Buoyant or rainbow pattern Tasmanian devil either casted and retrieved or trolled as deep as 5 colors. The bait n' wait folks were doing best with nightcrawlers fish inflated off the bottom or under a bobber or Garlic Powerbait in the either rainbow or green. Grasshopper and white were the best color for the trout worm/mini-jig folks.

Due to the dropping water level and several of our rental boats sustaining prop damage, the back of the lake and some of the island channel is now off limits to boaters. Kayakers can still access the area.

The boat launch at South Lake is closed for the season - unless you can carry your boat from the end of the public launch down to the water, it is suggested that private boaters head over at Lake Sabrina.
