Lake Monroe is entering it's summer patterns, largemouth are in post spawn pattern and can be caught near wood structure on deeper banks. Best tactics are shaky head worm, jigs and Topwater lures. Concentrate on main lake points and pockets. Walleye and wipers can be caught at various locations around the lake trolling crank baits or slow trolling shiners.

Does anyone have any advice for fishing near the dam this time of year?

I fished 2 days on this lake, boat traffic was slow and the only fish that I caught and release was a bluegill. I hope that someone would post a report to let me know if the fish are bitting. ( Any fish )

Fished yesterday with "wisind"! Got out on the lake later than normal ( 9:30 am +/- )! The lake was not crowded at this time and looked real promising. We each hooked a couple of LM Bass across from the "Allens Creek" boat ramp at the dam but that pretty much was it for the rest of the day! We hooked a few more odd fish between then and 3:00 pm when we called it quits. The water temp. is still high and the promise of a weather front never materialized while we were out!

Slowretrieve,

When wipers are located around deeper breaklines, a sonar baits-aka blade baits, work extremely well. These lures are generally weighted-1/2-3/4 oz. and vibrate erratically when a sweeping jigging motion is applied. Such action is especially effective as water temperatures warm up. Jigging spoons are also quite effective- Hopkins or flutter types will produce while vertical jigging over a school of wipers that may be located in the deeper channels. Once the approximate location of a school is located, provided it's not too deep, casting lures (weighted spoons) to the fish and counting them down to their depth level is also effective. If these fish are located shallower- 8'to 12', don't hesitate to use crankbaits, such as a #7 or #9 shad rap, rattle trap, etc, cranking them in as fast as possible. Trolling such lures to find these fish or any other species is an effective technique.

These techniques have produced some explosive action for me in the past, particularly on wipers, and I hope they will prove to be equally productive for you.

Keep em Coming, WMK

Wipers schooled deep and not very active! Bass are inactive but small one pounders can be caught! Salt Creek ramp has been calm now that the big power boats have pulled out. slow, deep presentation required.

I'm planning to fish a tournament on Monroe on Sat. June 22nd. Will pre-fish on Friday the 21st. I have not fished it this year. I hear it is still about 10-11 feet high and dropping at the rate of 4-5 inches a day. Anyone fish it real recent? How about a report of condition and best areas? Thanks.
