The Big Spots are Biting – Lewis Smith Lake Bass Fishing Report



The big Spotted Bass are active and biting on Lewis Smith Lake right now.  My clients and I have been targeting the entire water column starting on top in the early morning hours and progressively working our way deeper as the sun gets higher.  The DUO Realis Pencil 85 in Neo Pearl has produced well on top, as well as the newly released Spinbait 90 in Ghost Pearl and Komochi Shad fished slowly deeper in the water column.  Once the sun is high overhead, we’re targeting brush and drops with a dropshot rig in 17 to 23 feet.

There are some big tournaments coming up on Smith Lake in October with the Smith Lake Park Bass Fest Tournament on Oct 4th and the Alabama Bass Trail Championship Oct. 10-11th.  If you’re looking to learn more about Smith Lake I have trips available this month.  Please call or email for availability.
