In Buggs Island Lake bass are being caught by anglers concentrating on shad schools, near submerged wood cover, in the creeks. Shallow running crankbaits
and plastic baits, cast into these areas, will take the bass.

When fish are found in Kerr lake, anglers can load the boat, but finding them is the trick. Best action is coming from midlake and downlake areas, and seems to be centered around the points halfway back in the creeks and in the edges of the flooded cover in the coves.

In Kerr Lake bass are schooled up on structure and can be consistently caught on old road beds and points in 4-10 feet of water. Fish are aggressively hitting lures bumped on structure. Best lures are plastic worms and grubs in light colors, fished on Carolina rigs.

Bass fishing should be improving with the falling temperatures and stabilizing weather. Best pattern appears to be a Carolina rigged, pumpkinseed Zoom lizard, fished in 20-25 feet of water on main lake points. Working these baits across the middle of coves in the creeks, is also producing well.
