The first thought is man that's a lot of fishy lookin cover to fish. With so much good area for the fish to spread out in you have to cover as much water as possible. Once you get a bite or two, slow way down as there should be more in the area. For all the stuff that looks good, the fish will be grouped up in little areas. A good way to know when to slow down is bait prescense or fry prescense. If you see a concentration of bait there will be bass around and the best part is the bait is pretty easy to spot in the shallow water. There is also some shad spawning and areas with bluegill beds. These are dead give aways to good areas. If you happen to spot some fry get a weightless plastic under them or frog on top of them, there will be a fish or two with them. The LFT popper and frogs have been working well especially in the evenings right before dark. Been getting bit on both ribbit and hollow body type frogs. During the day the frog can still get some bites but I have been experimenting each day with weightless plastics as they seem to prefer something different each day. Hyper Sticks, Senkos, Trick worms, Magic Shads and a couple others are the different plastics i've been experimenting with each day. We didn't catch any giants but had some quality bites and any time you can watch em eat it on top it sure is fun.

This one had the front hook on the LFT popper almost in it's gut!! I think he wanted it

he's ready
