With the way the water is this year, the red bite will probably last quite a bit later than usual. White/Chart and Rayburn Red Texas 2-Step spinnerbaits, Talon White/Chart with candy chartreuse blades, and Talon Texas Craw spinnerbaits at Toledo Tackle are local favorites. Not trying to pump my own stuff, but these baits really do rule the Bend. Bluegill colors are also killer when the fish are shallow and just waiting for the right conditions to spawn. I would stick with darker colored plastics this spring because the water is dingy in so many areas. Brush Hogs and Beavers in watermelon/red, green pumpkin, blue swirl, Big Texan and California 420 are all very popular. You should also have some Senkos along in black/blue or one of the darker watermelon or pumpkin colors. Good jig colors are Watermelon/Red, P,B&J, Black/Blue and Black/Brown/Red. You can ask Jimbo or JT at Toledo Town what's working when you get here.
