You can catch a lot early on a buzzbaits early all up and down the lake. The spots are hanging out anywhere there are rocks, and they love a white War Eagle spinnerbait with a red head.

There are lots of bass on bed now all over the lake. The lake is seeing a lot of current, and that has made sight fishing more difficult than usual, but catches have still been phenomenal. A lot of good bass are being taken on spinnerbaits in shallow water as the bigger females get closer and closer to their spawning areas. Shaky-head worms and swimming jigs are both taking a lot of big fish from the grass.

DT-6 Rapala crankbaits that are crawfish in color are producing some good bass in about 8 feet of water in ditches on the lower end of the lake. An LC Jig in junebug color with black trailers and black/blue jigs with blue trailers also catching bass in the shallow flats off the main river channel.

Black/blue jigs and chartreuse Bandit crankbaits fished in the main river eddies make for a deadly combination in the current from the dam.

Bass are mostly on rock points. Most are being taken on jerkbaits and shad pattern square-bill crankbaits. The fishing has been tough because they are only running water at night.

Bass on Neely Henry Lake

  6/6/2012 7:00 AM

There are largemouth and spotted bass here and both are some of the biggest average sizes in the state. Fishing shallow year round pays off here. No need to go deep to catch them when it gets cold or hot. Cranksbaits, jigs, topwaters, and plastics all work great here. Square bill crankbaits fished along main lake docks can get you hooked up with many fish. You can also swim a jig through the grass and weeds when you find it.
