    The last few weeks the shallow bite/pattern has stayed consistent. Fishing in 1ft-4ft of water with buzzbaits and shallow crankbaits has been the key. The air temperature has been in the 80’s and appears to be in the 70’s next week! This is keeping the water temperature in upper 70’s, which is a perfect temperature for those bass to concentrate shallow.

    We are not catching a ton of bass on our trips, but the ones we are catching are quality. With that said, if you do not get a bite in 15-30min in an area, that’s normal right now…so don’t leave to quickly.

    The two lures that have been most productive for us are Hoppys(Tally Whacker) 3/8oz, in white or black AND a Bandit 100, any shad color.

    Bryants Grove cove, Jones Mill Cove and near Long Hunter State Park have been producing good bass.

    I had some luck last week in coves around Stewarts Creek and Fate Sanders. Went in morning. Most bass caught on white buzz baits. A few on crank baits. All in shallow water. Caught over 20 one day. Largest 4 lbs.

    Looking on my Priest Map, I’m having trouble finding Bryant’s grove and Jones Mill Coves. I see Jones Mill road and Bakers Grove road. What else should I be looking for?

    Jones Mill Cove is the cove on the right after you go through the first cut through(going down lake from fate sanders)….it has an abandon boat ramp in it.

    Bryants Grove Cove is the cove directly behind Bryants boat ramp.
