    Right now based on my sideview observations there are schools of fish chasing balls of shad mostly in deeper water. The fish seem to chase the bait into shallow water early, so that’s probably why the fishing has been better then. As the water cools and the levels drop, the shad will begin to die off, and that’s when a blade bait such as a silver buddy should become productive. As the water temp approaches 50 degrees and fish go deeper, a jerk bait such as a lucky craft pointer can bring them up. Bluffs will also attract fish in greater numbers. Jigs, worms, and other Texas-rigged plastics are my favorite lures during the late fall and winter months
