Bass fishing is fair. The lack of good wind on some days put a damper on the bigger bass moving up to the shallow water in numbers. Look is the shallows on the windy days. The shad and silver color Rapala DT10 will work on the shallow rocky points. The best results are coming during the first half of the day. Up the Savannah River and down towards the dam are producing as well as Beverdam Creek. Down towards the dam try cranking the Rapala DT10 and use the Shad Raps as well. The bigger baits like the #7 Shad Rap will catch bigger bass. The spotted bass are really on the move and are chasing the shad and herring up to the shallow water. This is a really good time to fish as many points as you can for a trophy spot. Several in the four pound range have been caught over the last couple of weeks. The Carolina Rig and the Drop Shot Rig is working fair on those days the wind isn’t blowing. Anglers are finding bass in the two pound range in water depths anywhere from 15 to 25 feet deep. Green pumpkin and watermelon colors are the favorite for the deep water. Don’t expect to fill the live well real quick with these methods.
