The bass fishing has been very good again this spring. There has been a few off days but overall it has been great. I have had reports of 30 to 100 fish days. Most guys are targeting the 3 to 8 fow. The shallow bite has been good thanks to the stained water. The best bite has been from the 400 tower and south. Guys are throwing a mixture of baits all have been productive. Try tubes in darker colors like Brown Pumpkinn, Dark Melon, Dark Smoke, Watermelons, and Green Pumpkin. On the lipless crank side of things guys have been throwing shad colors that have a punch of color in them like Sexy Shad or Helsinki Shad, Firetigers and Chartreuse based lipless have been productive also.The Jerkbait bite has been a little slow. Spinnerbaits have also been doing well try the classic white or Chartreuse or any combo of those two colors. Silver and painted blades have been working well.
