Bass fishing is fair. Anglers can find a box full of small spotted bass first thing in the morning. Top water baits along with spinner baits and crank baits are catching quick limits along the rocky points. Carolina rigs are accounting for most of the remaining bass caught. Good baits to carry along this week include blue and chrome Chug Bugs, 3/8 ounce Strike King spinner baits, Rapala DT7 Flat Baits and Rapala Glass Shad Raps. The wind should be your best friend.

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.
