We had a ton of fun today! The white bass were spawning around 4 fingers point along with the shad and just going crazy. We pulled up there to catch some largemouth bass, but ended up whaling on the whites for 3-4 hours straight. To much fun to stop. Caught them on chrome H2O Shad Rap style crankbaits. Once that bite slowed down with the sun getting higher in the sky we switched to fishing for largemouth.
We stayed on the lower portion of the lake and focused on the gravel areas in pockets and bushes within the pockets. Flipping and casting watermelon/red flukes dipped in chartreuse we caught quite a few. Nothing big as the majority were males and some smaller females.
They were pulling water from the lake like mad today which I feel had an effect on the bass. Many were suspended in open water. For the life of me I cannot figure out why they are pulling the lake. It is a good 13 feet low and needs all the water it can get. I guess they feel the lake drying out and going 30 feet low will be good for it for some odd reason.... grrrrrr! Very frustrating!!!
Best of luck,
I have been a passionate bass fisherman since I was 5 years old and, like many, have spent my life pursuing my angling passion. My goal now is to bring both an Educational opportunity and a way for fishermen to continue to participate in the sport without a financial burden upon the family.
I recognize a consistent theme among those who fish; the recurring dream of wanting more money and/or time to fish when they want. More than that, David has personally felt the negative impact of an industry where prices on everything from tackle and equipment to boats and trucks to tournament entry fees and gas have continued to skyrocket. During this same time, wages have stalled or gone down and sponsor support has been cut to practically nothing. This has caused many fishermen to give up on their goals and dreams. So, David’s desire extends beyond fishing.
I founded Beyond Bassin’, a company that would open new opportunities anglers had to pursue their passion, goals, and dreams.
