This is the time that the Alabama rigs, big swim baits and big glide baits will put a big fish in the boat for those that can stay with throwing them all day long. It certainly was fun this past week to see the tough bite subsiding and to be able to catch fish in the normal areas with the normal presentations. My guess is that it will take at least a week for the mud lines to clear out and settle and with a warming trend predicted for this upcoming week, we should be right back into a strong bite again. Anyone venturing out this next week or so should look for the cleaner water which will probably be mid lake and in the South Arms. I was impressed with the quality and size of the fish we caught this past week and it looks like we are going to have a good spring time bite. Higher water levels will provide more cover for the fish and with the abundance of bait fish in the lake, the bass are all fat and healthy.
Watch for more floating logs and limbs in the lake from this past storm, wear your life jackets, be sure to have your boat inspected before launching if you are coming from out of the area, and the wardens are checking for 2015 fishing license's. Have Fun, God Bless, Bob
