KEITH HUDSON GUIDE SERVICE - LAKE WEST POINT FISHING REPORT         

                  Water temps  are in the upper 70'or low 80's  .The lake is clear ,about 5 feet down and falling slowly.                 BASS  : Good  - We seemed to have finally turned the corner toward fall and the fishing has improved dramatically The shallow bite is pretty good now and will  improve even more ,especially if we get some rain and continued  cooler temps.Shallow-water baits such as unweighted Flukes, Senkos, buzzbaits and Rebel Pop-r,s are catching bass right now.Try to  fish these baits in or near cover and around schools of shallow baitfish.Fish the open water in the pockets with a Kvd 1.5 crankbait or an A-Rig . Also it doesn't hurt to have a  jig handy to pitch around any shallow wood cover . It won’t produce a lot of bites, and you are going to lose some jigs, but it's a good way to catch a bigger fish----- By the end of the month ( especially if it cools off quickly) the big schools of spots mixed with hybrids, white bass and stripers can be caught on jigging spoons and dropshot rigs on deeper offshore structures. 

Linesides:
Good.--.--- Downlining with shad or bass shiners should really pickup as the water cools off . Freelining a live bait will also work at times. Most of the fish seem to be holding 20 to 30 feet deep when they are not schooling on the surface and are moving around a lot.----- Expect the topwater fishing to continue to be the best very early and very late or on overcast or rainy days. A popping cork rig has been working well on these schooling 1- to 3-lb. fish. A 3/8 or 1/2-oz. white Rooster Tail, a chrome C.C.  Spoon and a number of other small shad imitators have been producing. The mouths of most creeks south of the 109 bridge and the flats around Amity Park have been holding fish. Trolling with mid-depth crankbaits and Alabama Rigs has also been producing some linesides in these same areas.------Some much  bigger fish seem to always show back up by the end of the month.---

Crappie: Good  ---Wehadkee, Yellow Jacket, Wolf and  creeks are producing some pretty good catches of  crappie. Try fishing the smallest minnows you can find or a 1/16-oz. or smaller jig around brushpiles and blowdowns in 5 to 10 feet of water. Concentrate on trees and brush that are close to the old creek channels.-- Pitching or shooting docks with small tube or feather jigs around or under the docks is also a very good technique during the  fall . As usual, crappie seem to love shade and cover.Cooler temps or a lot of rain should improve the fishing even more.

----Had a great guide season this year and looking forward to the peak fall bite from mid October until around Christmas, so book your trips now to insure your date !! ---
