Bass fishing is fair. Top water baits are good early then go to the secondary points in the creek. Look for coves and creeks with an abundance of shad and try a 1/8 ounce chartreuse and white buzz bait. Fish the banks and docks and cast the buzz bait or other top water lure to blow downs, docks, stumps, rocks, and brush piles. Other good choices are a Pop R, Chug Bug, and Baby Torpedo. Bass are also coming from docks and boathouses using plastic worms and jigs. Try a Zoom Trick worm with a 1/8 ounce weight and 3/0 Gamakatsu wide gap hook. Some good colors are June bug, green pumpkin, and red bug. Pay attention to the area of each dock where a fish is caught. Then concentrate fishing time on the same areas in relation to each dock. Some fish are also hitting jigs on the docks. Try a Stanley 5/16 ounce rattling jig with a Baby Brush Hog trailer. Some fish are hitting small crank baits and Rat L Traps near the back of coves. Two good choices are a ½ or ¼-ounce Rat L Trap and #5 Shad Rap RS. With the sun shining, try both baits in chrome-blue and fire tiger and a shad pattern with cloud cover.
