KEITH HUDSON GUIDE SERVICE - LAKE WEST POINT FISHING REPORT         


BASS = GOOD
Not much change as we move into the month of July. Bass fishing normally stays on a deep structure pattern . Hungry post spawn bass can normally be caught around  submerged road beds, pond dams and deep brush piles.Zoom Ol Monster or Mag 2  worms, pig n jigs , and Bomber Fat Free citrus shad crankbaits are the normal baits of choice.Look for fish in 12-20 feet of water. Fish tend to bite better during periods of water generation. ----- A  few fish always seem to  stay shallow. Topwaters, Buzz Baits and Senkos are good choices if you want to try shallow, especially early in the morning. One key pattern is to look for bream beds or May Fly hatches.---- Spotted bass also move to deeper cover . A  Zoom shaky head worm on a Tommyhead jig will work around blowdowns, bluff walls, and bridge pilings.

STRIPERS, HYBRIDS, & WHITE BASS = GOOD
During July  focus on the main lake, mostly south of Hwy 109 bridge. Downlining with live bait can still be highly effective.Try live shad or shiners for good  results. Look for fish to be holding around humps and drop-offs near the  channels in the mouths of most all the major creeks in 15-25 feet of water. Topwater fishing is usually  good as well.The fish should  start schooling on the surface and can be caught on popping cork rigs or by trolling small crankbaits.

CRAPPIE = FAIR
The crappie have moved to deep water for the most part. Try pitching small jigs around or under docks or into deeper brush piles for the spawned out fish. There are lots of deep brush piles in the pockets near many of the boat docks, especially in the Liberty Hill & Yellow Jacket Creek areas.  You may have to work a little harder to find them, but the fishing can still be  good for Crappie when you do find them.--- Night fishing is usually very good during July . Try tying up under a bridge ,grab a bucket of minnows ,put out some lights and enjoy the cooler night air.
