CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 5.3 FEET, mid 50’S DEGREES & CLEAR
Bass fishing will pick up after the next cold front. This is a big bass lake and this time of the season is the time the big boys bite. On the cloudy days you will need to break out those Shad Raps and Husky Jerk baits and get to work. The bass are still in the pockets and coves and they move back to the shallow water chasing food on and off all during the day. When they move back to the deeper water you can still catch them on crank baits. The bait of choice for making this move will have to be a Rapala DT10. Throw it in a green tiger and a shad color in the clear and green water and the hot mustard and red crawdad colors in the dirty to muddy color water. Use it in the coves and just let the bait slowly dig into the bottom with a slow retrieve. When the sun pops out during the middle of the day, there is one bait to use for the bass that have moved to heavy cover. Tie on a Zoom Super fluke in pearl and pitch or flip it right into the heavy cover. Secondary points and back into the coves this week and lay down trees and brush piles is the place to fish. It doesn't matter if you are up the Savannah or in Little River, find these areas and go fish.
