10 Reports on Gunlock Reservoir
We began fishing shallower water (10-12ft) and found nothing. We then moved to deeper water (30-40 ft) and found nothing. Eventually, we found a pocket of bass somewhere between the deeper and shallower water on a ledge. We didn't find many large fish, but we caught several largemouth dragging a dropshot up steep ledges. Move the bait extra slow and keep your line tight. Either a slow drag or slow turn of the handle. If you don't get bit in a few casts, move on. The fish we found were in a very specific 20 yard area with most being concentrated in a smaller area. A dropshot bait like the Nerbait crush worm in the Jr size is a great option for a slow moving dropshot. You don't have to impart any action for it to look alive.
Fish are moving out of wintering holes and starting to move to points adjacent to deep water. Start shallow and move deep until you find them. Found fish on lipless crankbaits and ned rigs.
