Sent to us by a fisherman Gene Gard. Currently the lake levels are down, the bass bite has been a little off. There is still a decent top water bite early and late, some nice largemouth can be caught working the weeds. Soft baits, crankbaits and spinnerbaits are all working well. My go to colors are green pumpkin or black blues.
