Charlie Taylor's Buggs Island Fishing Report

Striper fishing is good with live bait and 3/8 ounce bucktails producing the better catches. One of the better areas is around the Rudds Creek Bridge. Largemouth bass are favoring the main lake gravel points and may be caught on 10+ crankbaits in shad colors, and large spinnerbaits.

Crappie are holding above brushpiles in 10-15 feet of water.

After a brief respite, colder temperatures are coming back throughout the area. Water will be freezing and so will launch ramps. Be extremely careful to ensure you ONLY launch the boat. Make sure you WEAR your PFD and don't go out alone. Hypothermia is your enemy.
