For bass crank baits, spinner baits and jerk baits seem to have seen the most use. Green swim baits as well as shad colored swim baits in smaller sizes have been effective when presented to fish at 30 to 45 feet.

Good luck fishing!

No matter what species you come to Cherokee Lake to fish for you will find good fishing for all of them. If you come here to fish for striped bass try fishing points, drop offs, weed lines, the area from Rocky Hollow Cove to Cherokee Boat Dock, the dam, and last but not least fish the bait schools over the main lake. I would consider fishing spoons, jigs, crank baits, and live bait. If you fish here for bass try fishing the rocky islands and humps from Panther Creek to Fall Creek, shallow bays, near bait schools, and the dam. Think about spinners, soft plastics, and live bait for bass. Good luck fishing!
