The north end is muddy to stained and the fish are scattered and the bite is slow since the lake has risen. Better fish coming out of deep water off main lake ridges and humps dropping into deep- water sloughs on deep diving crank baits and Texas or Carolina rigged soft plastics. Black Bass: Early, work a top water plug, buzz bait or spinner bait over grass close to deep water. As the sun gets up, back out to the channel shelf and ledges, and main lake humps close to deep- water sloughs. Carolina or Texas rig with soft plastics and deep diving crank baits working best when fished in 10 to 18 ft. ledges and drops around structure. Watch for schooling bass chasing shad. Traps and shallow diving cranks working best when schooling. Bite is best early morning and late evening. White Bass: Work the main lake river channel sand bars, road beds, sloughs and main lake points in 16 to 20ft. of water. Slab spoons and Rinky Dink tail spinners working best. Watch for schooling activity.
