    Fishing has been consistent in the shallows. BCGS’s last trip found success behind Fate Sanders on buzzbaits and Bandit 100s in shad color pattern. The bass were in 1ft-3ft of water early in the morning(5:30am-7am). The next area that coughed up a few bass was back in Bryants Grove…the right bank going to the back of the cove. The fish were shallow there as well, lured with Bandit 100s. Lastly, several bass were caught near the bridges up lake. The bass have been coming to the surface and feeding on bait throughout the day. If you can be there when they come to the surface, white flukes, poppers and even little white crappie jigs are usually successful!

    The cooler weather is hopefully setting in. I can not wait for the water temperature to settle in the 70’s and even 60’s. The end of September, October and November offers phenomenal bass and crappie fishing. If you have thoughts of getting out with me or my crew on a fall guided trip, I recommend you reserve it sooner than later.

    Hey Brian. When using the crank baits what type of retrieve are you using? I know over the weekend I did some camping on the buffalo river and fishing for smallies I had some luck using shallow bandits. I would reel in and stop allowing the bait to rise up,and they would slam it. Thanks B

    I retrieve medium to medium/slow most of the time. Sometimes I will mix it up a little a retrieve fast with a stop and pause…..usually thats when there feeding. Brian
