Lake Monticello Spring 2015 Fishing Report (Updated May 14)

Catfish: Good.  Captain Chris Simpson (864-992-2352) reports that the overall bite for both big fish and numbers of fish has 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. Check out SCFishingTackle.com’s WEEKLY DEAL: Zoo ...
