Bass here still have not moved up, the cold weather and off and on rain has them a bit confused. You can find them on almost any deep water area very close to spawning grounds or shallow water. Knowing this lake is the absolute key to finding these spots, local knowledge is best. I have caught a 2.5 to 3 pound bass in the exact same area on four times out. So thats 4 nice bass in 4 days, here is the key....4 different baits used. As I said they are a little confused but they are feeding on the local bait-fish, you just need to find those areas. Good luck and contact me anytime.
