Lake Purdy Daily Fishing Reports



The fishing at Lake Purdy is heating up faster than the weather! Theres been some giant bass caught the last few weeks and thats just the start. The friday night bass contest has seen multiple 20+ pound sacks! Alex S. & Johnny H. had a 26.65lb bag of 5 fish and the next week Johnny caught 20lbs by himself! Its not just the Friday Nights when the big bags are caught either bevause our buddy Howard D. caught a 30 pound sack of 5 fish during a weekday last week! Howard caught a 7 pounder to start the morning off right and quickly caught multiple 5+ pounders to make for 30.1 pounds for 5 fish! The water temp right now is in the upper 80s to low 90s. The bass are moving out to their favorite summer holes to beat the heat and feed up on bait. Theres no better time to whack some biggins than when they school up in the summer. Crankbaits and underspins are working wonders out there when the schools are fired up. When the bite slows down the shakey head wormor dropshot is the way to go. Any kind of finesse style bait can catch some fish when the bite gets tough. The water is fairly clear with about 3-5 ft visibility in most areas. The little rain we have had overt the last few weeks hasnt been enough to keep the water level at full pool. As of the 29th the water is down about 6-7 feet.
The summer is one of the best times of year to catch a giant bass or a limit of crappie or bluegill! Don't miss out on the good times at Lake Purdy, come by the bait shop for tips on how to catch your next personal best! Check out these happy customers and their catches!
