If the lake is coming up due to the fact the gates have been closed. The fish are going to be along the main channel and sloughs. Concentrate on the points and isolated trees off the main tree lines.


 Black brown amber or black blue pattern 7/16oz or 9/16oz. Southpaw Jig & pig combo, Texas rigged dark colored creature baits rigged with a 5/16 or 1/4oz weight tied on Vicious 17lb fluorocarbon and a 100 series Citrus Shad Bandit crankbait on Vicious 12 to 15lb monofilament  should be the baits of choice.

Tree lines in 8 to 12 feet of water normally produce in the early morning or colder weather. If a warming trend moves in, try the inside edge of the tree lines. Same baits should work other than adding a 3/8 oz white chartreuse spinnerbait for slow rolling around the trees.
