 Aug 5, 2003; 09:20PM - LAKE GASTON
 Category:  Freshwater Bass Fishing Tips
 Author Name:  Steve vonBrandt/S&K Guide Service

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.

Cabo Fish Report
May 21-27, 2012

WEATHER: Here at the tip of the Cape the wind blew almost all week long, coming mostly from the northwest but sometimes shifting and coming from the southwest. Gusting to 30 knots at times, it was fairly steady during the middle of the week, only to die off on Sunday morning. As you traveled up the coast toward San Jose the effect was much less noticeable. We had mostly sunny skies this week with the nighttime lows ranging from 62 degrees to 74 degrees and the daytime highs averaged 82 degrees, just about perfect!
WATER: There is not much to say about our water conditions that are good, at least for offshore fishing. The strong currents that came in from the Pacific side last week really have had a lasting effect. The water on the Pacific side from the coastline out to the Golden Gate Banks and the San Jaime Banks remains a cold 56 degrees and green. On the Banks and to the west it warms a bit to 62 degrees but becomes even more dirty green. Up toward San Jose on the Cortez side the water remains in the 62-64 degree range and green while along the beach up to San Jose the water became very green and dirty at the end of the week. Warm water finally appears as you reach Punta Gorda and from the beach out to about three miles it is 75 degrees, continuing on up the coast to Los Frailes. Due to the continuing wind the water on the Pacific side remained mostly unfishable unless you were in a Panga hanging close to the beach, and that was not much more than five miles up, after that it was nasty water with swells at 4-6 feet and the wind gusting to 30 knots. On the Cortez side the swells were much smaller at the start of the week and now at the end of the week we are seeing the effects of Hurricane Bud, now dissipated and very far south of us. The swells continue to build and will remain large for the next couple of days, but here on Sunday we are seeing 6-8 feet from the south. The surfers are happy!
BAIT: Just about the only live bait this week was Caballito at the normal $3 per bait. The large swells at the end of the week almost shut off the Sardina netting and the water is too cold and dirty for the Mackerel, I am surprised to see there are still Caballito out there!
FISHING:
BILLFISH: Well, as I reported last week at the end of the IGFA Offshore Championship, the cold water shocked the Striped Marlin and the bite pretty much shut down with 47 teams releasing only 8 Marlin on the last day. The situation has not changed much as the fish are still scarce in our area. Boats that are targetting Marlin have to run almost 50 miles to get into that warm water toward Los Frailes, and even when they get there, getting a fish to bite is a coin toss. A few fish have been found closer to home in the colder water but these fish have been very reluctant to bite. My guess is that only 20% of the boats are seeing Marlin and out of them, maybe 20% are getting bit. As a result I have been recommending to our anglers that they target something beside Marlin, like inshore fishing for Yellowtail.
YELLOWFIN TUNA: The Tuna bite remained off this week with only a few football sized fish caught, and most of them were caught in the blind with no porpoise or birds to indicate their presence.
DORADO: I saw no Dorado brought to the docks this week but heard of a few very small ones of about 8 pounds coming from the direction of San Jose. No details on location or bait, just that there were a few small ones.
WAHOO: Dedicated anglers getting to the grounds early up in the Punta Gorda area reported having a few Wahoo bites, and I did have one Captain tell me he lost a lure to a wahoo offshore around the 1150, but I did not hear of any being brought in this week.
INSHORE: There is no doubt in my mind that inshore fishing was the way to go this week as the bite for Yellowtail remained strong on the Cortez side of the Cape and there was still a decent bite on Sierra between the lighthouse and the arch on the Pacific side as well as off of the Cabo Del Sol area. Mix in some decent grouper to 25 pounds, a few nice Snapper and occasionally a school of Pompano moving through and there was pretty consistent action. The lack of Sardines at the end of the week hurt the inshore fishing just a little bit, but not a lot.
FISH RECIPE: Check the blog for this weeks recipe!
NOTES: Beach time and I think it will be a problem to keep the puppy from getting into the surf, she loves to swim and the swells might be a bit much today. I wrote this report to the music of her snoring at my feet and the birds chirping outside as the sun comes up! Until next week, tight lines!
Happy Memorial Day to All!
Many thanks to all who have served in the past and present. Your sacrifice can never be repayed.
