Bass fishing is fair. There is a good top water bite in the backs of the creeks. Main lake rock piles are god with spinner baits and the jigs. Top water will work around the schooling fish but use small baits. Spoons will work for the smaller fish as the water cools down. It’s best to stick with the jigs and the small finesse worms for now. The fish are sluggish so do not expect a surge of action anytime of the day. Use the using a white Super Fluke also. There are small schools of fish in the backs of most of the major creeks. These fish are eating very tiny baits that have just hatched so match the hatch. Use the smaller under spin lures with a small Zoom Fluke trailer. Bass are after small threadfin so small is the key.

SONAR TIPS: 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.
