Tim Isbell with a 3lb and 5lb bass caught with chatterbait
Fishing Statistics Dec 13th
Water Temperature: 55 degrees
Lake Level: Down 3 feet from full pool.
Water is continuing to rise slowly and should be full by the end of December. Chatterbaits have been the best bait for catching big bass in December (see Tim Isbell's catch above). Catfishing is very strong after a good rain creates some flowing muddy water (see The Jordan's catch below using red worms).
