Bass fishing is slow, except for cloudy days or in the evenings. If the skies are mostly cloudy, then the fish will bite fairly well all day. You can fish top water all day long when the weather permits. Use a Spro Dawg 100 in Old Glory on 50 pound test Sunline FX2 Braid. Walk this bait next to grass lines on the main lake. The lake is full of small shad and they are all in the grass. The Spro Dawg works really well because it imitates these small shad. Make really long casts at fish that bust shad. A Lew's Speed Spool will throw like a rocket. If the sun is out, the bite gets really tough. Fish slowly with a small swim bait in the grass. A 5" Big Bite Baits Cane Thumper in Reel Shad will work. Rig this on a 5/0 Superline Gamakatsu hook with no weight and fish it over the tops of the hydrilla real slow. There are still a few fish on ledges on the Chattahoochee River , but this can be hit or miss. Use your Lowrance DownScan to find balls of shad on the ledges and look for fish arches to be underneath them. These fish will bite a crank bait or jig fished slowly. As the weather continues to cool down, so will the water temperatures and the grass will start to die back. When this happens its time to break out the lipless crank baits and hit the flats.
