Bass fishing is slow and bites have been few and far between, Most of the bass caught are spots and most of these are small. It’s a tough bite and the big bass are hard to find. With the water level at just about full pool, the spots are roaming and the largemouth are holding tight. Ledges are still a favorite fishing areas to fish this week. Carolina rigs seem to be a favorite for bass anglers and a good choice of baits to use on these rigs is a red shad Culprit 67 inch worm. Light ten pound test line and a 2/0 Mustad hook is best. Make long casts and work the worm really slow. Another favorite bait to use this week on your Carolina rig is a Zoom tube in the pearl and watermelon colors. Use the 3/0 or 4/0 wide gap Mustad hook. Rapala Shad Raps and Rapala DT10 crank baits are still catching some bass on the southern part of the lake. Several anglers are heading towards the dam and catching a few off the points.
