March & April 2016

March & April on Caddo means one thing, bassn’ for a boat load! There will be several patterns working in April. One of the best patterns is flipping the many Cypress Trees on the main lake with 7/16 oz black-blue Southpaw Jig tipped with a black blue craw or a Texas Rigged black-red flake or junebug lizard rigged with a ¼ Tungsten weight will be a big bite producer.

 If the wind is calm I like to throw weightless Texas rigged watermelon red or red shad color fluke or senko type bait over the grass for the post spawn fish. Normally they are not very aggressive, so the slow fall is needed to get their attention. If the wind is blowing, throwing a shallow diving crawfish or citrus shad crankbait over the grass can load the boat. Remember to look for the grass and pad mixtures when fishing this pattern.

If there is current in the bayous a white and black back or crawfish crankbaits fished around the mouths of the bayous will catch the quality bass.
