Congrats to Gavin Barbour! Zakk Royce with https://www.bluesbrotherscharters.com/
Water temperature is steadily into the mid 50’s on much of the lake & even into the 60’s in some of the creeks. Fish are on the move as they migrate to their Spring pre spawn areas. It’s a great time to catch big numbers of fish, as well as big fish….. https://www.bluesbrotherscharters.com/ Zakk Royce
From Dominion & LGA…..The week of January 21st, the Lake Gaston Dam will open spillway gates for the first time since operations began in the early 1960’s. Scheduled replacement of equipment in the power house requires shutting down the turbines at the dam, and in order to maintain lake levels, one or two gates will […]
Recently I’ve been making a point to fish as many new and different areas as possible on my days off. With a record amount of rain, and extremely high water, everything is completely different the past year from normal. I have basically had to start from scratch and really do things completely different to find […]
This summer continues to be the toughest fishing I’ve had in a long time without a doubt, but fortunately still been able to get on a few decent fish willing to bite. Seeing some fish indicating the spawn is coming to an end with a lot of fresh scars and skinny, is a great sign. […]
Fishing Lake Gaston
Zakk Royce put Lake Gaston on the map for catching the State Record….here is his sandwich at The Pointe! Great Lunch!!!
Cold front threw me a curveball the last couple of days, but I’m a firm believer that they are always biting even in the toughest conditions, so we kept trying different things until we finally figured out the pattern, and ended up putting some nice fish in the boat! Have put at least one fish […]
Can’t wait for the spawn to be over! Thankful for every fish that bites right now. It’s frustrating marking tons of fish all day on the fish finder and only picking up a few of them here and there. But it’s that time of year….. It won’t be too long before they are done and […]
The Lake Gaston Striper Club meets on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays from the last week of March till the first week of November. Picture from April 25th & can’t wait to see what they catch on May 13th…..
Holiday Weekend begins on Lake Gaston….
It feels great to be back on some good fish! A lot of water flowing right now from all of the rain and the fishing is on fire! Lost count of how many I put in the boat and also lost a couple good ones. Several times my float went under as soon as it […]
Spawning time is here & fishing is always interesting. Lost a monster at the boat earlier in the week, but the first one landed was over 50 pounds. Bigger Fish will be pretty elusive overall for a month or so until the spawn is over. Not a fast bite right now, but catching quality fish! […]
The spring bite is a little behind this year, things have started picking up though, & now is a great time to get in on some pre-spawn action. Some great fishing ? this week & the bite is on……This has been the toughest spring I’ve had so far personally, they have been moving a lot […]
This has been a tough March, as far as the weather goes & it’s definitely had the fish changing patterns a lot. The big fish bite has been tough for me since the water temp dropped back down below 50 degrees, but I’m thankful that the action has still been really good so far……. Patience […]
