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.
Tubes in Purple Spring Goby and Green Myst has been working well. Guys are also really liking the reaction they are getting from the Smallies when they add a little Goby Juice or crawfish scent from Juiced Up. A drop-shot rig has also been productive has well X-Zone Slammer and Erie Darters are still everyones go too baits.
The live bait guys have been doing well with what ever large minnows they can get. Right now it sounds like all anyone is getting on the lake is Golden Shiners. The avg size of what we have been getting has gone up to more around the 4inch size.
Three patterns seem to be going right now. The guys working the shallows are fishing lipless cranks and ripping through the grass. Guys fishing Mid lake depths are dragging tubes and drop-shots and same with the guys fishing deep. Also guys have started to catch good numbers of smallies fishing tubes on 3/4oz heads. The hot color in tubes have been “the Shiz and Canadian Goby”
The baits of choice for the guys drop-shotting have been erie darters from poor boys and X-Zone Slammer. But don’t over look other Goby drop-shot baits out there. A lot of them are producing well right now.
