Bass fishing is fair. The lack of rain has kept the lake water very clear. The spotted bass are still moving some to feed and will get more active as the temperature cools once again. The largemouth tend to remain more at home and are holding tight to cover. Buzz baits are catching a few bass early in the morning right at day break, but fishing as a whole has been slow. High pressure has been dominating the weather pattern and this calls for slower than normal fishing conditions. The Lowrance BOTTOM LOCK on the Sonar screens, all frequencies, allows anglers to see the bottom of the lake with incredible accuracy. Go for the active spotted bass early by fishing the rocky points and the areas between two close points. Shad Raps, Wiggle Warts and DT’s will all work so tie on at least one of each. Switching baits frequently is sometimes the key during slow periods. As the day progresses, fish the stumps and brush piles and any lay downs with jigs and worms. Fish them slow and don’t be afraid to work your baits into deeper water.
