Lake Jocassee Bass Fishing Report

With Lake Jocassee just two feet below full pool, the fishing is good despite the 80 degree water temps.

Zara Spooks with rattles and prop baits like a Devil’s Horse or Knights Custom Lure Prop Bait in a bluegill pattern are good to wake the bass up for the early morning bite. Try throwing these lures on long points and shoals with a start and stop motion.

After the sun gets up, move back to the rivers. The largemouth are cruising under the bushes and around the rocky banks. Throw shaky head jigs with a green or green pumpkin finesse worm or Senko worms back in the coves.

The spotted bass are bedding in 10-15 feet of water back in the pockets. If the spots are chasing bait and wanting a more aggressive bite than worms, try switching to flukes or lipless crankbaits by ripping them through the water.

The fishing for largemouth and spotted bass is good on Lake Jocassee and don’t be surprised if
you catch a smallmouth for an extra bonus.

Capt. Kim - Speckle Trout Guide Service
Capt. Kim Di Betta has over 40yrs fishing experience in the Delacroix area. I like to say i go catching instead of fishing. I fish all live bait (shrimp, minnows, croakers). You will fish aboard a 25ft by 9.6 wide stable Parker center console.
