Bass fishing is fair. Concentrate on flats close to the creek bends at 12 to 17 feet deep. Sea walls are fair early with e small Red Fin. A small Fat Free shad in pearl or all white on ten pound test line will get these baits to dig the bottom. Bass seem to be relating to the edges of the creeks, so use the Lowrance and mark these edges with several marker buoys so you can stay on the ledge. Shad schools will be important as the bass will follow the shad. Use a Carolina rig and work a finesse worm or centipede in watermelon, June bug or pumpkinseed with a 3 foot leader ahead of a full one ounce weight. With the larger number of spots in the lake, these fish like smaller baits like finesse worms, small crank baits and small grubs on light line.

Bass fishing is barely fair during the day and a little better after dark. The Carolina rig and main lake ledges are best. A Zoom pumpkin lizard is the best bait lake wide with a June bug lizard a close second. The fish have moved out to the river channel ledges or to deep docks. Almost all the fish are taking plastics but try a gold buzz bait any time you come up on a dock. Jigs are also fair on the docks in all brown but use smaller baits seem to work best on the spots. Plastic or pork trailer will work and match the trailers to the bait. Soft plastics in the green pumpkin in a finesse worm and a Zoom Bush Hog will get strikes. Add some Lunker Sauce to the baits for extra strikes.
