They're moving shallow.....

Water temps are bouncing between the mid 50's and low 60's and with every passing period of warm weather, more bass are heading to the bank. Couple this with rising water and things are setting up well for a good spawn. I'm targeting the bald areas between the shallow side of the hydrilla and the outside edge of the flooded vegetation in 3-8 feet. Best baits have been soft plastics in watermelon shades. Flukes, Senkos and lizards are my go-to's. Lot's of buck bass with the occasional "good-un". Also try spinner and chatterbaits slow rolled around the same areas. I have quite a few dates left to book in March so gimme a shout if you wana go fishing. Set the Hook Hard

GOOD. Water stained; 62 degrees; 3.30 feet low. Bass are relating to points and main lake brush piles using jigging spoons and crankbaits. Crappie continue to migrate into the river, with catches in the brushpiles using whitehead jigs or minnows. Catfish continue to move into shallow water and into the creeks.
