March & April 2016

Some of the Bass are in the spawn mode and some are post spawn.

7/16 oz Southpaw Custom Jigs in Black & Blue or Black & Red tipped with a craw in matching colors will be a good bet. Fish the jig combination along the edges of the flats early, about 6 or less. As the sun warms the water in the middle of the day move up on the flats and slow roll a white and chartreuse spinnerbait around the stumps and lay down logs. If the spinnerbait does not produce, try a weightless Texas rigged watermelon red senko or fluke type bait. The best depths are going to be from the banks to about 7 feet of water. The 100 series Chartreuse-blue back and crawfish colored Bandit crankbaits fished in and around the stumps on the flats and along the edges of the flats.

Crappie

Shiners and small crappie jigs tipped with shiners fished along the edge of the ridges in the oxbows should be a good bet on the Crappie. Four to seven feet of water with standing timber should be a good place to start.
