Toledo Bend Bass Fishing Report July 24, 2001

The lake is falling about an inch per day and the water temp is ranging in the high eighties to low nineties. The bite is better and the fish are more active at night. Large magnum worms, spinner baits, buzz baits and noisy top water plugs in dark colors working best when fished around lighted docks and shallow water dropping off into deep water. 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.

Water Temp: 85+
