WEST POINT LAKE IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 90’S
Bass fishing is tough. Bass are in the summer slump with the hot water. Presentations must be super slow for any results. Spinnerbaits are too fast. Top water frogs and poppers are the trick very early. Work them as slow as possible all the way from cover to the boat. The fish will sometimes follow the lure, undecided, and strike when you begin to lift it into the boat. Keep an eye on your bait. You will often see more than one bass following the lure. Medium jigs are doing well with soft plastics worked around the rocks, grass and cover. Again, the slower you work them, the better the results. Carolina rigs on deep brush piles and wood have produced well this past week. If they are pulling water, work down the slope. If they stop pulling, work from deep to shallow. Keep it slow. Fish are stacking up on the ledges during the heat of the day. With the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology, anglers and search great amounts of water and not waste time fishing water with no fish close by. The best time to catch bass is during generation hours. Currently, water has been moving in the late afternoons. Look for any irregularity or point along the channel. Stumps and trees are a bonus for holding fish. It’s hard to beat Carolina rigs and deep diving crankbaits in these areas. Early in the morning you can find some fish shallow in grass or lily pad fields. The closer you can find these places to the deeper water, the better chance you’ll have of getting bit. Frogs, buzz baits and small, white swim jigs will work.
