Fishing Report – June 19, 2014
Bull Shoals Lake Fishing Report
As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 662.43 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 654 msl).
Ken Minsky of Ken Minksy’s Loch Leven Guide Service said midlake temperatures remain in the mid-70s.
The main lake structure continues to be producing the most consistent catches. Look for schools of spotted bass along primary points on the main lake side, in depths of 45 to 55 feet. Shad- and crayfish-colored jigs will produce the best results at those depths.
Walleye are hitting well just after dark along main lake structure where points or flats meet deeper standing timber.
Crappie can be found near deeper brush piles in 25 to 40 feet or water, in the main lake as well as deep creek arms.
Largemouth and smallmouth bass are hitting along main lake bluffs in 25 to 45 feet of water.
Catfish are spawning and nice catches are coming from trotline fishermen with sets in the backs of shallower creek arms.
