Big Bob's fishing report: Oct. 4, 2017

With summer about over, the fall patterns for bass should start soon. That’s top-water in the morning and evenings and jigs during the day. Do not overlook crankbaits as they have been working all year long. Speaking of crankbaits, if you have not seen the new colors of the Rock Crawler, stop in next week. Look for bass in both the creeks and on the main lake.

Walleye are being caught on the main lake at depths of 25 to 35 feet with night crawlers trolled slowly or deep-diving crankbaits. Large bluegill are active along bluff walls in 25 or more feet, and night crawlers work well on these tasty fish.

With Bull Shoals just about back to normal levels, fishing should pick up. For all of you who have avoided high water, now is the time to be on the lake.
