Alt copy goes hereAs the water temperature inches up the bass move into deeper cooler hauntes along deep- water creeks, sloughs and the old river channel shelf and ledges. The bends and points in these areas that have brush tops, lay downs and other cover are the areas to concentrate. Early morning and on cloudy days work the edges of the pepper grass, duckweed, and lily pads growing close to deep water with top water plugs, buzz baits, spinner baits, shallow diving crank baits, soft plastics and finesse plastics. When the sun gets overhead and the shallow bit slows down, back out to deeper water and work deep diving crank baits, Texas or Cr rigged plastics. Also watch along main lake points, boat lanes, road –beds, flats and timber- lines for schooling bass. Keep a top water plug, trap, or shallow diving crank bait handy when they are schooling. If the fish go down throw a Texas, CR rig, slab spoon tall spinner or deep diving crank bait. Some grass is starting to show up on the ridges and flats. Jigs and Texas or CR rigs work best. The White Bass will be holding along the old river channel sand-bars in 13 to 20 ft of water. Slab spoons and tail spinners working best. Watch for schooling fish along boat lanes, timber lines, main lake points and flats close to the river channel.
