Normally would not post twice in the same day, but I am leaving Tillery now and wanted to give a quick update. Air temps rose from below freezing to ~40 degrees before noon, with bright sunshine and clear water visibility to 4+ feet. Had some success on a Drop Shot using a 4.5" Straight Tail Roboworm in Morning Dawn. But really wanted to share that I also had success with a Wacky Rig using a 5" Yamasenko in Green Pumpkin Black. Really had not thrown that technique all Winter, so a pleasant surprise. Good luck to everyone on the lake today!
Cover water with a spinnerbait to search for active fish as they move up from their wintering holes.
Bass can be found pushing shad into the backs of major creeks all across Lake Wylie as the water temps continue to fall. Covering lots of shallow structure with a crank bait can be a very productive method of catching fish this time of year. Focus on Docks, Laydowns, and shallow rock when looking for these nomadic fish. Jerk baits such as the Berkley Stunna are also a great choice to locate bass hiding out in shallow structure.
