July Kerr Lake Fishing Report by Captain Rick Morris


Here we are the dog days of Summer, The water temperatures are high! The long hot days can make fishing very slow so time to fish offshore. Keep this in mind,  offshore ledges and brush pile fishing is best early in the morning the same as shallow fish,  so if you go shallow first you’re passing up the best time for offshore fishing. The best offshore places will have rock wood or brush dropping off quickly to deep water. Maybe the side of a long point on the main lake where it drops from 10 to 30 foot, obvious channel swings create this. Channel swings and fast breaks offer water, flow, food, and habitat. Seek these places out.  Time to break out 10 inch worms, large and finesse jigs, drop shot,  shaky head worms and Carolina rig. Experiment with different size plastics and different colors, size and color can make a big difference this time of year. Fish These baits very very slow. If you’re chasing fish with your #ActiveTarget (forward shooting sonar) then drop shot is still the best choice, however under spins with Swim Baits show up really nice when targeting brush piles. 👌Good luck, start early and stay hydrated. www.RickMorrisFishing.Com,
