LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & MID 70’S Bass fishing is fair. The water temperatures are dropping making them active. Bass are on the rocking points and lots of bait’s will work. Fish as many points as possible during the day. Use the hard baits like the Bandit 200’s, Rapala DT10 and Rapala DT along with Ito Vision 110 Jerk Baits and Shad Raps. When the fishing slows down use the Shakey Heads and the Carolina rigs. Some of the water holding the better fish will be twenty five feet deep or deeper. A slow presentation will work best when fishing this deep. Try using a Zoom Trick worms for the larger fish. A thirty to thirty two inch leader and a 2/0 Mustad offset bend hook works best either on the Texas rig or on the Carolina rig.

LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & HIGH 80’S Bass fishing is fair. Shad Raps and Bagley crank baits along the rip rap is still an early morning hot spot. Top water baits are just now getting productive but only in selected areas. Rocky River and all of its feeder creeks are my choice for a quantity of bass this week. Use spinner baits, Rapala DT10 and DT6 in shad patterns and the bleeding Shad Raps and Super Flukes attached to a 3/8 ounce Fish Head Spin. An all white Zoom Super Fluke is working and it imitates the shad well in clearer water. Adding some Mega Strike scent will help a lot. Use the Wiggle Warts, Rapala DT10 and DT6 along with Husky Jerk Baits and Bandit crank baits. When the fishing gets slow, back off and use the Carolina Rigs over the stumps. This is a good time to fish any color trick worm and add a nail weight inside the middle of the worm to make it sink a little faster in the grass. Greens are the best colors with pumpkinseed being second. For a sample of the BASS FISHING LAKE RUSSELL book e mail ken@southernfishing.com
