  7. Details: Steamboat Rock Fishing Hot Spot®

    Free Fishing Hot Spot®
    The Steamboat Rock shoreline on the main lake offers good fishing for smallmouth bass. The rocky point bars are best for smallmouth ...more during mid-summer and again in late fall through early spring. Carolina-rigged or drop-shotted plastic worms and tube jigs like the Bass Pro Shops® Tournament Stik-o-worms are best. Work the weedbed areas with crank baits like the Jackall Aska Squarebill and top waters like the XPS Wheel N Deal from Bass Pro Shops® throughout the summer months. Spinnerbaits like the Bass Pro Shops® Lazer Eye are very good in this area, especially after dark.
