Bass fishing is good. As the water gets cooler, the Shad are becoming more active. Large single Shad can be seen tight against the banks in the coves. Use the shallow running Shad Raps when fishing in real shallow water mid day till dark. The bigger quality bass are coming from five feet of water and deeper. Use the Bandits and the #5 RS Shad Raps on the wind blown points and rocky banks. Follow the wind and you will find the fish. Make long casts and use a slow but steady retrieve. Slow cranking a #10 Husky Jerk or a Down Deep Husky will also work. Try to find areas where either a channel or ditch runs close to the points or banks. The bass are using these deep water channels as highways on roads to get to their feeding grounds. Use your buoy markers to mark the sharp drop offs.
