LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 80’S Bass fishing is slow. The bass aren't showing any signs of grouping together and the anglers are moving about the lake all during the day to catch a limit. Isolated structure still seems to be the best producer up in the rivers, but don't overlook the rocky points near the deep water. Early in the morning, continue to use those top water baits up close and over submerged cover. All missed strikes must be followed with a small jig, plastic worm, or a Shad Rap which runs about three feet below the surface. On the days where the wind is blowing across the points, use the Fat Free shad in Citrus Shad patterns and Shad Raps or Fat Raps and crank them slow. Color selection will vary all during the day so be sure to have a few of each to cast.

LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & LOW 80’S Bass fishing is fair but action depends on whether or not there is moving water. A Carolina rigged Trick Worm will also catch fish. If there’s generation happening the bite really picks up and you can switch to a crank bait like a Bomber Fat Free Shad or a Norman Deep Little N. There’s also a decent big fish bite for largemouth in the timber when there is water moving. The largemouth are suspended in 12 feet of water and you can catch them by picking apart the timber with a Texas rigged Zoom U tail worm in green pumpkin. Be sure to use the Rapala DT10 to get these deeper fish. Spots are all over the shoal markers deep brush or rock in 12 to 27 feet of water. A drop shot with a Zoom Finesse worm in green pumpkin or watermelon red will do the trick. For a sample of the BASS FISHING LAKE RUSSELL book e mail ken@southernfishing.com
