I started the day with a Rebel Pop R on secondary points. I picked up a few small males but nothing more than a couple pounds. I moved out to the main lake where I fished a spinnerbait on shallow points with grass being key to getting bit. This held up all day with me catching 30-40 fish mostly smaller males but the occasional 3-3.5 lber. I threw a Fluke around docks and picked up some better quality fish with the best being around 5lbs. Now is a great time to catch a bunch of fish, a lot will be smaller males but you can take a kid and give them a spinnerbait and have a blast.

Jordan Lake By Reed Montgomery Owner of Reeds Guide Service Birmingham, Al. (205) 663-1504 Website www.fishingalabama.com With two full moons, one occuring in mid April and another in mid May, Jordan lakes both spotted bass and largemouth bass will be on the move, along with constantly warming water temps (now in the low 70's in mid April and close to 80 degrees by May) each week. Also air temps close to 80 degrees and sunny days help! These bass get more active with each rising water temp and the spring spawn shows lots of big bass now in shallow water. Largemouth bass will be in any shallow, weedy flat especially those weedy shallows featuring wood cover nearby. Spotted bass will bed right along main lake rock bluffs, along rocky points, around islands and on any red clay bank or small pebble bottom area, like small cuts and pockets, near deep water. Places like major feeder creeks, small cuts and pockets and flats along the main lake can visibly show largemouth bass beds, if the water clarity is clear. Always bring along a good pair of polorized sunglasses, for spotting shallow bass (on or around beds) and you can see these bass as well! * When the sun is overhead, is the best time to locate these cleared out and often bright, pale yellow bedding spots on the lake bottom, seen in shallow water of 1-3 feet deep. Besides fishing for Jordan lakes bedding bass by aggravating them into striking your soft plastic offerings, there are always plenty of more cooperating bass to be found by fan casting an assortment of lures, nearby. Lures like Bill Lewis Rattle traps, Strike Kings Red Eye Shad (or other lipless lures) and shallow running crankbaits, both suspending and floating model hard-bodied jerk baits and topwaters featuring treble hooks (like Zara Spooks and Sammies) are more reserved for open water or for casting around this lure-grabbing, weed and wood cover. * Weeds call for weedless lures. Not using treble hook lures (that are used for more open water applications), like casting them out around the weeds, or around wood and rock cover. Weedless frogs, buzz baits, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, weedless spoons, and many weightless lures like Zoom's trick worms and flukes or Gary Yamamotos Senkos, Texas rigged or rigged wacky style are good lure choices all throughout spring and early summer.
