It is this time of year that has mixed feelings for me,as it is best at a ledge bite,by ledge meaning deeper.
Mostly I myself tend to fish humps not drops,yet surrounded by deep water.Best bite was on watermelon seed or pbj jigs with paca craws,depth 12-17 ft.
Deeper one would have th fizz to deflate swim bladder,proper care of fish caught is or should be a primary concern,in my own thoughts no T should weigh in dead bass-period.That would make those who fish deeper take better ca...Read Full Post »

Fishing now is either increadably hard or increadably easy,somewhat depending upon if you run on to a school of keepers in transition.
Beat the bank with small crankbaits one gets buck bass all day long maybe 1 or 2 keepers,maybe.
Tossing rubber for those larger ones is slow but works better on keepers.
Flats near bay mouths main lake bars,secondary points,even ledges contain keepers.
Water temp yesterday 82f,paris landing bay
No topwater bite to speak of ???? Cr...Read Full Post »

My signature series Capt Kens desingner bass frog came in.
For those wanting one or a clone series http://bass-frog.com/Clones.htm
For fishing with skitter legs the clone would work about as well,the dna hotlegs on this will work faster and more relistic than say the clone if using the standard type of legs.It will have a review soon of usage right now the high water has it over the pads by several feet.

Main lake flats and or humps still active,swimbaits or spinnerbaits around remaining grass hot still.
Average fish being caught is 16 in.What few are under 15 in are mostly spots,very dark backed as in 4 ft of water.
Often grabing something by the tail not real agressive yet bite.53f to 58f depending upon where one is at and time of day.
Most of the remaing grass is past the rr bridge and beyond south .Think green shad.
