Bass fishing is good. The top water bite is beginning to pick up, but the best places for top water are on shallow flats around any topped out grass. A good bait for top water is a Stanford Turbo Shad in bone crusher or buster bream colors. A good way to fish the bait is on 50 lb. Sunline FX2 braid with a 25 lb. Sunline Machine Gun Cast leader. The leader only needs to be about 6 inches long. This helps to keep the bait from fouling up when working it. Other patterns that are working pretty good right now are fishing a crank bait and an A rig on grassy points with shad present. The Lowrance units will really make it easy to find, locate and distinguish between bait and grass. Also, when fishing these areas, be looking down in the water as you pull your bait up, and look for shad following the bait. This will allow you to see if there are shad in the area. For the Alabama rig, rig it with 1/8 or 1/4 ounce Gamakatsu jig heads and Big Bite Baits Cane Thumpers in reel shad or SS shad colors. When cranking, there are two crank baits that work really well on Seminole, and they are the Spro Little John DD and Baby DD. Clear chartreuse and nasty shad are two good color choices.
