    Default Salem and Oak Hallow Lake

    Got to fish Salem lake for the first time on Tuesday and it was rough. Didn't get a bite and I had no idea what to do lol, I flipped mostly grasslines with all this high water though I think the fish are probably pretty spread out. Oak Hallow was a lot of the same. Very muddy and blown out with more visible shoreline targets than I could flip at. If anybody has any suggestion for where or what I should do this upcoming Saturday I am all ears because all this muddy water and new lakes has my number.

    Salem Lake - Fish the aerators for catfish and hybrids.. Live bait. I refuse to fish there because of the ridiculous cost to launch a kayak and fish.

    Oak Hollow - Muddy days are bad for most of us there. Let it settle.

    That makes me feel better, I will say if anyone wants to fish Salem Lake right now would be the time to do it because it is free with all the covid stuff going on.

    I crossed over Randleman yesterday and it looked fishable.

    I love Oak Hollow and dirty water as long there is at least 1-foot of visibility. There are fish in the shallow cover in those conditions but I'd recommend fishing moving baits with good vibration. (spinnerbait, square bill, etc)
    Tight lines,

    You speak as though you have caught fish there.

    Hope you and the family are well, by the way.

    I wish Salem was in a better part of the city. It's not terrible but it's not great either. I give the city credit for a really nice building they put on the property though.

    As for the fishing I've never fished it but there are pics of MONSTERS in that lake.
