    You are correct, with the all the recent rain and cooler temps, it is a different summer than most. Not all the bass have moved out into the deeper water. I have heard of several good bass caught on the ledges this summer, but have heard just as many caught shallow around the short grass that grows around the shore in coves and creeks. If I were putting in at Shutes, I would try the rip rap in the back of the cove with topwater baits early and/or then plastic worms. Then, I would focus on shore grass with spinnerbaits and plastics worms.There are definitely a lot of active bass shallow.
