Bucksaw June 13-16

Recommended Posts

Taking the family up to bucksaw this weekend. Been keeping up on past and present post concerning reports. anybody fish in the area recently, and if so with what luck? Have always had luck on this lake but with all the rain in the past couple weeks was unsure how the lake is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Dont really care what type of fish, figured for the most part we would be hitting crappie and cats...I just want to get the boy and wife on some fish...Thanks for the help

I usually put in at Long Shoal, but it's worth noting that the lake is about 12 feet high with all the recent rain. As a result, bass and crappie (especially the bass) have been slow to bite. The catfish bite, however, has been good. The COE has recently started letting water out through the dam, and this is creating a current in the lake, which has helped the white bass bite tremendously. We caught several whites Saturday at the weir, which is near the dam. At Bucksaw, you're not really that close to there, so I'd check shallow flats in mornings and evenings for white bass, isolated cedar trees in 12-15 ft. of water for crappie, and maybe some shallow flats near creek channels for cats.

We caught nine whites this past weekend and my 10-hook trotline caught four cats (two channels, a blue, and a flat head). You and your family would probably have the best luck with the cats. Night crawlers or cut shad should do the trick. Have a great time.
