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.
