Bass: Guide Jerry Kotal (706-988-0860) reports that in October bass will normally be caught on the bottom in deep water in both the main lake and creeks. In addition to live bait they should take drop shot rigs and jigging spoons.Striped bass: Guide Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) reports that in October fish are traditionally very scattered, but they should start to leave the ends of the lake and move back towards the middle of the lake. Both free-lines and down-lines should catch fish if striper can be located.Crappie: Guide Wendell Wilson reports that October is often one of the very best months for Lake Russell crappie. Fish can be caught in the creeks around brush as well as long-line trolling in mid-depths, and both jigs and minnows should catch fish.Catfish: Guide Jerry Kotal reports that this is not generally a month when he targets catfish very much, but he does pick some up on jigging spoons while fishing for bass. Catfish can be targeted with cut herring fished on the bottom around schools of bait.
