Bass fishing is good. Most of the fish are in prespawn. Fish can be found in main lake pockets and ditches and have been as shallow as 2 to 10 feet, as well as still around points and pockets in 20 feet. We have been using green pumpkin trick worms on a shaky head, a weedless 1/4 ounce Fish Head Spin in Pearl White and Albino colors trailed with a Super Fluke Jr., as well as jerk baits in the pockets. The shaky head has also been effective around the docks. Look for the fish to move into a hard stage shallower over the next week. There are some fish on the beds, but it is not yet consistent due to all the cold fronts.
