WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 4.1 FEET, STAINED & MID 70’S
Bass fishing is. Up lake the water is slightly stained and the grass is still growing strong. Use a ½ ounce Redemption spinner bait and a Bass Pro Enticer buzz bait both in the shad colors. Fish 3 to 5 feet of water around grass in the backs of pockets in Yellow Jacket and up the river. If the fish blow up on the buzz bait and miss, follow it up with a Netbait green pumpkin finesse worm. Use a worm with a 1/8 ounce Tru Tungsten weight in the same green pumpkin color. As the day warms use a ½ ounce Picasso football head jig in the bream color. Fish this jig in the deep pockets and points throughout the coves up the river and around the Indian Mound. Down lake the pattern is similar but in deeper water. Throw a finesse worm around blow downs and brush piles in 8 to 12 feet of water. Water down lake is clear so make sure to use a fluorocarbon line. Spinnerbaits are working well and a tandem blade combination seems to out produce the rest. Use a ½ ounce Strike King spinner bait in the sexy shad color. Work this bait at fast speeds for best result and twitch you rod every couple seconds to trigger strong hits.
