Lake Wylie Fishing Report

November 13, 2013 

Largemouth: Fair. FLW pro and local guide Matt Arey reports that bass are starting to move into a fall pattern and fish are making their way into the creeks.

Early in the morning fish are schooling in pockets and the shallow backs of creeks. These shallow fish are less focused on bream and essentially keyed in on threadfin shad and will take shad imitations such as topwaters and swimbaits.

The other major bite is targeting “wolf packs” of roaming bass that are shallow in 2 to 4 feet of water in the creeks. The most popular lure for catching these fish has been a jig.

Catfish: Slow to fair. Capt. Rodger Taylor reports that the bite has been tough. Try drifting or anchoring cut white perch around flats or humps in 30 to 40 feet of water.
