Bass: Guide Brad Fowler reports that when water temperatures drop into the lower 70s there should be widespread schooling activity across the lake, and in October fish should also be more willing to eat a variety of topwater baits as they get onto larger bait. While there will still be an offshore bite also look for more fish to move into the creeks where they can be caught on buzzbaits or crankbaits.Striper and hybrids: Guide Chip Hamilton (864-304-9011) reports that October can be one of the best months of the year, and they are hopeful for an excellent month for topwater schooling. Fish will get further into the creek runs and there will be more places where you can fish.Crappie: Captain Bill Plumley reports that in October fish will move shallower along the edge of the channel and suspend around brush where they can be caught in the middle of the water column on jigs and minnows.Catfish: Captain Bill Plumley reports that the quality of the October catfish bite depends on the weather, but if it cools then bigger fish will come shallower out of the timber where they can be caught with cut bait in the creek runs. If water temperatures stay high then smaller channels as well as flatheads will be the main catch.
