Hi, I’m Martin and we have rented a Lake House and a Boat on Lake Gaston, NC. We are seeking insights on how the fishing is on Lake Gaston, what bait and lures to use if on shore or out on the boat.
Thank you!

What are you targeting? Lots of docks to focus on for bass in the shade. This time of year most bass will back off out of the shallows after the sun gets up. Points and humps or any deep water structure will hold bass. If you’re after cats or crappie, maybe another stager can help you out with them. Good luck.

Thank you for the quick reply! We are targeting Bass. The place we rented has boat dock and we are on the Littleton side of lake. What do you use for lure and bait to catch Bass?

I am strictly an artificial bait fisherman. For bass there are a lot of options but I will try to keep it simple. A Texas rigged worm, or a jig and craw are good choices for around docks submerged wood etc. Squarebill crankbaits are also good for structure or rocky shoreline. If the wind picks up a spinnerbait will produce strikes. I would suggest trying a few different lures and see what works. No sense buying out Bass Pro Shops for a few days on the lake.

Well, the bream are spawning in shallow water. That's alot of fun with bobbers and night crawler worms, and they're some big bream in gaston. This can be done from the shore line. Or catfish from shore with cut bait or minnows, on the bottom. Top water baits are good for bass very early in the morning, buzz bait, torpedo, devil's horse are 3 good bass baits. You should catch bream, catfish a d crappie from shore easily. Good luck !
