Angler’s report: “Bartlett Lake is hot!”

Bartlett bass“Bartlett Lake fishing is hot!”

So said Kyle A., who sent in the following Bartlett report:

Went fishing Saturday morning (May 28). Actually slept in and got a late start. Hit the water a little bit after 6 a.m. and fished until about 11:30. In that time we caught about 20 bass with three people in the boat.

All the fish were caught off of Texas Rigs using dark colored lizard imitations — green and red seemed to give the best luck. We were hooking them anywhere from right off the shore to 10-15 feet deep.

Try fishing from Echo Bay Cove to the Yellow Cliffs

Most of the fish caught were working the shore starting at Echo Bay Cove and working towards the Yellow Cliffs just north of the Flats. We also went to the dam and worked back north but didn’t have much luck with all the jet skis and wake-boarders romping us.

I tried tossing a white spinner for about an hour and had no luck at all.

Most fish were typical Bartlett bass, but we did pull in a few with some decent meat on them.

The pictured fish is my friend Brett, it was his first time going bass fishing and he got to pull in his first four bass ever!
