Lake Monticello Spring 2015 Fishing Report (Updated June 5)

  • by Jay

Catfish: Good to very good.  Captain Chris Simpson (864-992-2352) reports that free-line drifting for numbers of fish has been working very well, and anglers are filling coolers with catfish using that method right now. Both cut herring and shrimp will catch fish. The bite for big fish has also been pretty good. Anchoring on humps and points that allow you to fan cast baits from 10 to 40 feet of water has been the most pattern. Cut herring, shad and white perch cut into small pieces about the size of a mussel are the best bet.
