GOOD. Water lightly stained; 80 degrees; 1.46 feet low. White bass are good early back to the pockets using chatterbait in water depths 1-3 feet. Try topwaters at first light on main lake points 1-3 feet deep using a KVD Sexy Dawg. Later, try shaky heads worms with GrandeBass Rattlesnakes or Lake Fork Tackle Baby Ring Fry in 5-8 feet of water. Largemouth bass are good. Early morning bite in water depths 2-5 feet using Z-Man chatterbaits. The mid morning bite is in 10-15 feet of water and the bream beds using Carolina or Texas rigs, 10-inch worms in blue or green flake. Transitioning midday to shad colored deep diving Bill Norman DD22 crankbaits. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs near brush piles, bridges and timber. Catfish are good using chicken liver, cut and live bait.
