Bass fishing is good and anglers are scattered from one end to the other. Fish the backs of the small creeks and coves with the cranks. Largemouth are in post spawn as are the spots lake wide. Small crank baits in the shallow running variety works and the crawfish color #7 Shad Rap and the mid running Rapala DT4 are working well in the shallow water. Keep the line size down to the ten pound range and keep the bait in the water. Top water is about to break loose so get the Pop R’s, the Chug Bugs and the Pop R’s and stay in the back of the coves for best results. The spots are still hanging out on the points with an occasional big fish running about midway back into the creeks and coves. The spots are hitting a few of the spinnerbaits but you will catch a lot more on the #5 Shad Raps and jointed Shad Raps. Jigs are also working around a few of the boat docks but it has to have a lot of wood in and around them to hold the larger males. A fair worm bite with an occasional two to three pounder are being caught. Stay with the crank baits for the limits and then try the jig or plastic after the mid day.
