Bass fishing is good. The cool breezy weather we’ve had the past few days has helped the shallow bite. A lot of shad and baitfish have already started moving back in the pockets and creeks, giving us a preview of what the fall transition will be like. Shallow crank baits and top water are hard to beat in the morning and evening. The best crank bait for both quantity and quality has been the Spro Little John 50 in the Nasty Shad color. Fish this crank bait around sea walls, docks and points adjacent to the main river channel. Try to bump the crank bait off dock posts or any wood cover you see. Deflection is the key to getting reaction bites when fishing a crank bait. A Spro Bronzeye frog in the Leopard color will also produce around grass beds near points or under overhanging trees in the morning and evening as well. A jig and a shaky head are still catching fish around brush piles and shady docks. A green pumpkin Buckeye Mop jig has been the bait of choice around these brush piles and docks. If you don’t get a bite on the jig, try a Buckeye Spot Remover shaky head in the same place to get a few extra bites. A green pumpkin Zoom trick worm is the best plastic to pair with the shaky head. The deep bite is still consistent in depths of 18 to 23 feet. Carolina rigs, drop shot rigs, and a Spro Little John DD crank bait are best in the offshore locations. As always, the deep bite will be best when Georgia Power is moving water.

I still have a few guide trips available next week. Give me a call to reserve your trip today.
