    Smallmouth bass are sitting on the deeper bushes in the coves. Lot of active bass. Water temps where at 57 degrees. Good time to get out and get em. Keep your baits small, for more bites.

    Some smaller smallmouth are in shallow water but deeper water with steeper banks have been more productive. Small jigs, ned rigs, and swimbaits (2.8 keitech) will get some smaller fish. Larger smallmouth are on flats adjacent to deeper water. Top water, jerkbaits on fast retrieves, and dropshot style baits have worked. If you don't find them keep moving. They tend to be grouped up and there is a lot of unproductive water. We have picked up some Largemouth and crappie. 6-7" worms and crawfish styled jigs and baits have worked for largemouth. Crappie were chasing down bass sized jerkbaits.
