LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & HIGH 50’S

Bass fishing is fair. Bass have been hitting a Carolina rig worm while fishing the channel ledges. These areas are great to find active feeding bass due to the high levels of oxygen that is generated by the moving water. If you head up this way, and it might not be a bad idea, take along a variety of baits. Start off the morning by throwing either a Jointed Shad Rap or a RS Shad Rap along the bank. This will tell me if the bass are in feeding pattern and are active. Another good bait to take along is a smoke or smoke/red flake Fat Albert grub on a ¼ ounce plain lead head. Work the channel ledges and look for the areas that have the best cover on them. Also take some of the Zoom finesse worms in the smoke and purple colors.

LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR & HIGH 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. The bass have backed off the shallows into the ditches for the most part. Jigs in the ditches and small to medium diving crank baits will work. This cold front will result in a small but hopeful good shad die off. This would mean even better fishing as the bass prepare for winter. Fish in water from ten to twelve feet deep and find those underwater highways and related ditches on Navionics before heading out. Good baits to use this week include a 1/2 to 3/4 ounce Strike King football jig, a Rapala DT 6 or Rapala DT 10 in Hot Mustard or brown bone color and a 30 to 32 inch Carolina rig.
