Your Upcoming Excursion is still on!


Currently the fish are hitting on small weighted Texas rig or weightless worms with a slow weed less presentation is best. Color seems to vary. Black and blue/ blue flake should be the color for this time of year. Motor oil and tomato red flake has about the same effect. They are changing patterns frequently right now because they are biting out of protecting beds and competitiveness. Black lizards with blue or chartreuse tails have always been good on sunny days as well. The guide recently caught just a couple on top with a frog so if you are a die hard top water fishermen it’s an option but not very productive.  Chatter baits have also become successful that are yellow or white as well.  Mid-Range Divers are also good in certain lakes and frogs are always good for top water action fishing.
