Bass fishing is good and there are a lot of spawning shad around the man made rock piles and the bass are right in there with them. Any wind blown point can also produce a few fish using the Lucky Craft Flashminnow 110 and Pointer 100's. Once the sun gets up the fishing gets a little trickier. Fish are already seeking thermal refuges such as shaded banks, deeper water and the backs of creeks. Be ready to adjust quickly once the sun gets up by fishing deeper water in the 10 15 foot range. The hump bite in the main lake is starting to turn on strong as well. Best deep baits for fishing deeper are a small 1/4 ounce standup Bass Stalker jigs and spot stickers tipped with a finesse worm. Also, the drop shot bite is producing a few fish. The largemouth are still roaming in the pockets and creeks and they are after any small popping bait or a small Zara Spook in shad patterns. Top water lures line the Devils Horse will catch some good largemouth as well as the Senko green pumpkin worm rigged weightless.
