CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 5.3 FEET, mid 50’S DEGREES & CLEAR

Bass fishing will pick up after the next cold front. This is a big bass lake and this time of the season is the time the big boys bite. On the cloudy days you will need to break out those Shad Raps and Husky Jerk baits and get to work. The bass are still in the pockets and coves and they move back to the shallow water chasing food on and off all during the day. When they move back to the deeper water you can still catch them on crank baits. The bait of choice for making this move will have to be a Rapala DT10. Throw it in a green tiger and a shad color in the clear and green water and the hot mustard and red crawdad colors in the dirty to muddy color water. Use it in the coves and just let the bait slowly dig into the bottom with a slow retrieve. When the sun pops out during the middle of the day, there is one bait to use for the bass that have moved to heavy cover. Tie on a Zoom Super fluke in pearl and pitch or flip it right into the heavy cover. Secondary points and back into the coves this week and lay down trees and brush piles is the place to fish. It doesn't matter if you are up the Savannah or in Little River, find these areas and go fish.

CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 5.3 FEET, HIGH 60’S DEGREES & CLEAR

Bass fishing is fair. Use the crank baits, jerk baits and jigs. Locate stretches of banks and locate the channels that push up next to points or swing close to the water’s edge. Use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to locate these productive areas. These are great places to find good bass without a whole lot of searching. Use the jigs in these areas and pick the bottom structure apart. A tight wobble crank bait and a slow presentation with a jig can work. Try using a Rapala DT or Rapala Flat crank bait in the pearl grey shiner color in the clear water and a parrot or gulp color in the stained water. Use the 1/4 to 1/2 ounce Terminator jig and fish the lay downs that drop off into or near the deeper water. It won't be unusual to be fishing your jig in 20 to 25 feet of water. Also try the #10 X Rap and fish all the primary and secondary points you come across. Sometimes big bass move up on the points to feed or just hang out on the edges, waiting for food to pass by especially on those windy days. Use a little bit lighter line on the jigs and crank baits and anywhere from ten to fourteen pound test Sufix Siege for all.
