Fall Fishing Frenzy At Lake Jennings

The following report is courtesy of Lake Jennings: 

  • Bass seem to be everywhere! Fishermen reeled in some bass near the boat dock on garlic nightcrawlers. Others were productive in Shadow Cove using shiners and on the shoreline over in Cloister Cove. Try your luck using senkos, rapala lures and worms.
  • Bluegill are biting in the reeds near Eagle Point. Half Moon Cove was a popular spot too. Anglers caught some redear sunfish and crappie on cut nightcrawlers near the T-dock.
  • The catfish were hanging out in Hermit Cove and Cloister Cove biting on chicken livers.
  • Do you miss Night Fishing season? Not to worry! New Moon Fishing is on Saturday, October 6th from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Remember full-sized lanterns are required after 6:00 p.m.
