WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 2.6 FEET, STAINED & LOW 80’S
Bass fishing has been slow and there are no firm patterns as fish can be caught in both deep or shallow water. For the shallow water fisherman, focus on the blow downs lake wide. Throw a Texas rigged trick worm with a 1/8 ounce Tru Tungsten weight in the green pumpkin, watermelon candy, and June bug. Use 8 pound test Sufix fluorocarbon line to get the most bites possible. Keep a Rapala DT6 in shad pattern tied on and use this bait at every stop. Use only 10 pound test Sufix Elite clear line on a spinning reel. Frog fishing can work around grass in the backs of pockets. Try the Stanley Ribbit, Sizmic toad or the Spro Bronzeye Frog. Mid lake, use a medium diving crank bait on the wind blown side of the lake. Focus on 6 feet to 9 feet of water and look for shad on the Lowrance depth finder.
