Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report August 15, 2001

The pattern continues to remain the same as it has been for the last couple weeks. Water temp is ranging from high 80s to low 90s. The lake is at 169.09 ft and falling pulling the shallow fish into deeper water. The bite is extremely slow and the larger fish are harder to come by. Better fishing at night. During the day, start off working 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. 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. A lot of schooling activity going on so keep a small trap, shallow diving crank and a top water plug handy when schooling.
