The fishing on the lake this and the past week has produced some nice size fish. The weather is changing and I hope more of the shad will start to move to the back of coves near creeks sometime soon. At the moment most of the shad is stilled balled up in deep water. Using your fish graph to find areas holding fish and eliminate non-productive water is an advantage. I have been asked numerous times how I find "big bass". Well it's simplified by following some rules: Slow moving baits produce a greater number of large bass for me, Find the bait fish and you will find the bass, don't leave an area you are catching fish to find more fish, patients, I fish shallow to deep, and finally I use small lures to find a pattern and then increase size of the bait. The main lures used that made a difference were: Using a Mann's Bait Co. +30, +20 crank-bait in natural shad color and chrome/blue. Present it between submerged stumps on flats in 6' deep water letting it drag the bottom, Berkley Power worms (7-10") are working well tossed in and around main lake point grass lines in a multitude of colors, When all else fails we used Carolina rigs with Zoom Centipedes or chrome Rattle-traps for schooling fish. The water is crystal clear; so don't forget your polarized sunglasses. If you did forget or just don't have a quality pair, stop by East Texas Optical on Highway 154.

skeeder, you have great reports. We really appreciate the time you put into those

I noticed the link to your website has a comma at the end, and when I click on the link it thinks the comma is part of the address, and doesn't like it...fyi...

thanks again!
