Bass fishing is good. Deep crank baits and jerkbaits having been working for bass. I suspect a red 3/4 ounce Rat L Trap will start to work. If it turns colder, then a 1/2 ounce Little George, Heddon Sonic or Silver Buddy will work. Also, drop shots will start to work. The water temperatures are down and the grass is dying. This has made the lipless crank bait bite and Chatter Bait bite turn on. With the cold water, the bass are still relating to the deep grass edges. The middle grounds between the Firebreak and Stinky Island and the flats in front of Wingates are both good places. For the lipless crank bait, opt for a heavier 3/4 ounce bait such as a Spro Aruku Shad 85 in mudbug red. For the Chatter Bait, use a 1/2 ounce green pumpkin with a 4 inch Big Bite Baits Cane Thumper in easy money color. Another pattern that seems to be working is using drop shots in Spring Creek. For the best setup, use a Lew’s spinning reel, a Duckett spinning rod, 7 lb. Sunline fluorocarbon, a Gamakatsu drop shot hook and a 1/4 ounce drop shot weight. Nose hook a Big Bite Baits 6 inch Shaking Squirrel in earthworm, and then you’re in business. The best areas to drop shot are anywhere in Spring Creek in deep timber. You need really good electronics with Down Scan, such as the Lowrance HDS touchscreen units. They make it much easier to locate fish and shad to increase your odds.
