Stillhouse Fishing Report

May 22, 2024
GOOD. Water stained; 77 degrees; 10.12 feet above pool. Only one public boat ramp is currently accessible at the Union Grove Park. It is a four lane ramp. Fishing for largemouth bass in the newly flooded terrestrial vegetation and along the inside edge of what was the shallowest hydrilla stands has been excellent for quality fish on soft plastics, including sunfish imitating soft plastics. White bass fishing has also been very good, with my clients landing over one hundred fish per trip on each of my last several outings. Fishing 24-33 feet in clear water and on bottoms free of dying hydrilla has been the key to success. Dying hydrilla is making side-imaging difficult to find fish with, so 2D and down-imaging are very useful now. We've been using MAL Dense Lures vertically until fish lose interest, then changing over to using MAL Heavy Lures with a sawtooth retrieve to continue catching white bass. Best bite for white bass has been 8:15-11:00 a.m. wind and gray cloud cover definitely enhances the bite. Report by Bob Maindelle, Holding the Line Guide Service.
