Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: Lake Gaston'

Lake Gaston is located in both Virginia and North Carolina. It is a large lake of 20,300 acres. Many professional and amateur tournaments are held here each year, so it receives a good deal of fishing pressure. This is where we competed in the Regional Finals for the Red Man Tournament Trail in 2000. The main species of fish in the lake are largemouth bass, striped bass, and black crappie. Other species include some walleye, chain pickerel, white perch, bluegill, and catfish. The main forage base is composed of alewife, gizzard shad, threadfin shad, and herring.

Lake Gaston has relatively stable water levels, and high quality water. There is a good population of largemouth bass, with many large fish available. Most of the bass we catch at Gaston run around 15 inches and about 1 1/2 pounds. We have caught numerous 5 and 6 pounders and some larger fish were caught in the finals. In fact, some of these fish were 8 or 9 pounds. The lake record is 14 pounds 2 ounces, so there are plenty of big bass left in Lake Gaston. Gaston's striped bass fishery depends mainly on stocking. Many striped bass are caught each year that weigh 3 to 8 pounds, but plenty of 20 pounders are taken each year. The walleyes are doing good at Gaston also and many trophy fish of 8, 9 , & 10 pounds are caught.

The striped bass make a spawning run each year up to the Roanoke river in April and May. Lake Gaston has a variety of structure also, such as submerged bridges, stumps, submerged roads, and lots of grass in the summer. Most of the water flowing into Lake Gaston comes from the Roanoke river. The visibility in the lake usually ranges from 4-8 feet, although heavy rains can make it muddy. There is a thermocline in Gaston in the summer at about 20-25 feet. In the summer, oxygen levels are low are far down as Great Creek. The bottom is sand and gravel with some flats covered in silt, and clay hillsides. The shoreline is mostly wooded, with some high slopes. North Carolina Power and Virginia Power owns the entire 350 mile shoreline. There are lots of docks, rip rapped banks, and brushpiles. there are really a lot weeds, including elodea, milfoil, and hydrilla. This is especially true in the creek arms and coves, with the deep weedline at about 10 feet. They do treat the grass and also have added some grass carps.

The best locations for largemouth bass in the spring (March & April), are the northside creeks, especially Pea Hill and Lizard. They normally turn on first as soon as the water temperature reaches about 50 degrees. The next places that turn on is the southside arms, especially Lees and Poe. We like to fish these areas around the boathouses, rip rap, and laydowns with a chrome / blue rattlin Rapala and a Colorado spinnerbait. We stick to the structure that is in the 5-10 foot deep water. Bass here start to spawn around April 15th, and last till around June. The other areas that can be real productive are Pea Hill and Six-Pound Creeks. Sometimes we use floating worms, and wacky-rig them for some hot action. Another method that works good in these areas is soft plastic jerkbaits. During the tournament, and at other times also, we really caught most of the better fish on these baits. Fin-S-Shads were our top producers. Lake Gaston is known for a good topwater bite. You can really get into some decent bass in these areas on buzzbaits and poppers also. Even Zara Spooks produce well at times.

Later in the year, about June, the largemouth like to relate to classic bottom structure like humps, points, and stream channels, or even large beds of hydrilla. These hydrilla beds produce large bass as well as numbers until about September. We usually probe the deep weedline with a Texas-rigged worm or Yamamoto grub. The 'SENKO's' also produce well here. Usually in the mornings and at dark, we twitch jerkbaits over the top of the hydrilla, or even throw buzzbaits.

If you like to fish structure, then the main lake points at creek mouths like Pretty Creek are good. Another good spot that has bass on humps and drop offs is Hubquarter and Lyons Creeks. The 15-20 foot deep area are best, as that is where most of the baitfish are. Carolina rigged lizards are a good choice, as are for worms, 'SENKO's' and grubs. At times, we catch good fish here on deeper crankbaits as well. The water starts to cool off a lot in October and November, and the bass start moving back to the 5-10 foot deep water. The best areas at this time are Jimmie's, Lizard, and Six-Pound Creeks. We use a 3/8 to 1/2 ounce jig at this time, with a black/blue or brown/orange 'Uncle Josh Pork trailer'.

We like to carry several spinning rods for the lighter lures, in different lengths, from 6-61/2 feet, with a medium action, in a good graphite rod such as a G Loomis. We like Shimano reels, spooled with a 8-10 pound Stren. For baitcasters, we carry a variety of rods, in 6 1/2 to 7 foot lengths, in a medium/hvy action, and a crankbait rod, in 7 foot. We use Lew's and G Loomis rods, and Shimano Chronarch reels on most outfits, with 17-20 pound test Stren.

Weather continues to be remarkably cool for June. Sardina are still among the missing, though we are beginning to see a few small schools along the beach. The only bait available are the 'bigger baits' which can be anything from bonefish (yes, bonefish) to mackerel. With plenty of marlin offshore the big baits are fine for teasing. Most of the tuna being found are of the football variety and tough to keep around the boat long enough to get in a few casts. Inshore the roosters and the jacks are the best bet but without the sardina, techniques are reduced to slow trolling the bigger baits, and that has produced less than stellar results. With the lack of sardina for chum, the beach has been the most productive for us this week. Omar Moniem, Norwalk CT and his buddy, Shane, drove up from Cabo to spend the day with our Guide Josh Dickinson to get some pointers. It must have worked! This is the email we received several days later: 'Josh, we hit the beach again on the way back to Cabo. I caught a small rooster and Shane had what was probably a medium sized jack hooked but lost him. Thanks for your help. We had a great time, I learned a lot about a new kind of fishing, which is always my primary goal.'
Talk about Guide frustrations, Josh and I both had clients on a panga Friday and the action was slow (no sardina again). Then, after the clients left, he, Josh, walked back to the house, and had a handful of shots. He landed a nice rooster right in front of the house. Go figure, right place…….right time.

Earlier this week Jamie Pierre and his buddy Jim Lasardi met us at Lopez Mateos. Bob and Diana Hoyt, Mag Bay Outfitters had arranged the trip for us and it was an adventure. The first morning we loaded the 4x4 Jeep and Suzuki Sidekick on a ferry and headed for Magdalena Island. The exhilaration we all felt as sped down the deserted beach toward Cabo San Lazaro was very special treat. The surf fishing from the rocks was extraordinary. Standing high on a rock sight casting to big jacks, pargo, snook and white sea bass all in the same wave………priceless! Then a late lunch at one of the fish camps that consisted of all you can eat lobster topped off a day that we all will remember for a long time. Devils Curve went off the week with some fatty snook that got the best of our clients so they had to satisfy themselves with leopard grouper and pargo. Outside the west winds have prevented much exploring. With water temperatures climbing it won’t be long before the offshore action begins to heat up.

The 80° blue water is holding at 6 miles, and the fishing activity is picking up. The blue marlin bite is still running strong, and in my opinion, for this last few weeks we have been probably the hottest place in the world for a chance at a blue or black marlin. Sailfish action, while not as hectic as in the winter months, is still producing two to three fish per boat a day on conventional gear.

I guided Abe Moskow of South Carolina for two days of fly fishing. The first day we fished the blue water with Adan on the panga Gitana II. Abe hooked one sailfish. The second day, Abe had a blast while we worked the near vertical walls of the White Rocks. With Abe casting from the bow, Felipe on the panga Yellowfin was masterful at keeping the panga in position. By following the birds and the bait schools, Abe would cast into the boiling white water, and at times, was hooking a fish on every cast. We were mostly getting jacks and black skipjack tuna. These hard fighting fish were really pulling on the 10wt rod.

The weather has been nice, ranging from overcast to sunny skies with some rain during the nights. The boats that did venture out and did quite well finding action at thirty miles that produced good sailfish catches ranging from the low single digits to a few double digit scores along with a few tuna and dorado. Several boats reported blue marlin catches as well. One boat fishing inshore enjoyed excellent action and released 6 roosters in the 25 to 45lb class.
