Bass fishing is good. Bass are feeding all during the day and the spots are roaming and hitting the crank baits well. Work Beaverdam Creek with using a variety of Shad Raps. Crank baits and finesse worms are accounting for the majority of the bass. A short cold front may slow things a little but the fishing will rebound as the full moon approaches. Head up the Savannah River early and then after mid day, go back down lake to the 72 bridge and up in Beaverdam Creek. Stay in the wind and keep cranking the Shad Raps. Try the new Scatter Rap but do not fish it too fast as it will roll over. Fish no further back in the creeks than the secondary points and remember the larger bass are going to be holding to the cover. Make several casts on both sides of any brush piles and wood. With any sunny day, crank the wind blown side of the 72 bridge rip rap.
