Bass fishing is fair. Mimi Me spinnerbait’s are taking most of the quality fish but use a slow presentation around rocky areas. Some fish are back in the pockets but many are up on flats and points. There will be a strengthening pattern back in the pockets and largemouth roam shallow areas. Depend on spinner baits to cover the water. Start with a slow retrieve then graduate to a slightly faster retrieve. Work the shallow wood cover and invest a little extra time to probe wood with plastic or jigs. Keep a Zoom Speed Craw handy along with a jig and craw trailer. A McStick jerk bait will take quality fish back in the pockets also. Cast it close to cover and let the bait sit while the water settles. Twitch and pause the bait and Sufix Siege 12 pound test on a bait caster will work well.

The Lowrance FLASHER mode along with the full LCR Screen, is the old style Flasher. Many anglers still use this function as well as the AMPLITUDE SCOPE. This function allows anglers to watch their bait in the water column.
