Water Temp 62 degrees and rising
Water Elevation 360’ (One foot above summer pool)
Pitchers and Flippers are having a ”Slugg Fest”. Largemouth Bass are in the bushes good. Texas Rigged Lizards in Pumpkin-Chartreuse are working for me. This weekend will probably be the best of the year for shallow bass fishing.
Carolina Rigs on bars at the mouths of bays and pea gravel points on the main lake are producing good fish. The fish seem to be mostly 8’ to 12’ deep, although I’ve caught some as deep as 18’. Tubes are also catching fish on deeper rocky points. Pumpkin-chartreuse again.
May 3rd, I had my first good afternoon catching Bluegill and Redear on shallow 3’ spawning areas. Mostly an afternoon bite as the water warms. 1/32 oz jigs tipped with a wax worm, set under a bobber did the trick.
Still good sized and fair numbers being caught. I’ve done best when fishing brush on 12’ to 16’ flats in bays.
I’ve got fish to go catch! See ya later.
Capt Kirk, out.
