WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 4.1 FEET, STAINED & MID 70’S Bass fishing is. Up lake the water is slightly stained and the grass is still growing strong. Use a ½ ounce Redemption spinner bait and a Bass Pro Enticer buzz bait both in the shad colors. Fish 3 to 5 feet of water around grass in the backs of pockets in Yellow Jacket and up the river. If the fish blow up on the buzz bait and miss, follow it up with a Netbait green pumpkin finesse worm. Use a worm with a 1/8 ounce Tru Tungsten weight in the same green pumpkin color. As the day warms use a ½ ounce Picasso football head jig in the bream color. Fish this jig in the deep pockets and points throughout the coves up the river and around the Indian Mound. Down lake the pattern is similar but in deeper water. Throw a finesse worm around blow downs and brush piles in 8 to 12 feet of water. Water down lake is clear so make sure to use a fluorocarbon line. Spinnerbaits are working well and a tandem blade combination seems to out produce the rest. Use a ½ ounce Strike King spinner bait in the sexy shad color. Work this bait at fast speeds for best result and twitch you rod every couple seconds to trigger strong hits.

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 4.8 FEET, STAINED & HIGH 70’S Bass fishing is slow. Fish are shallow in the mornings and can be caught on a Pop R or buzz bait. Keep a white Zoom trick worm tied on so you can have a follow up bait if the fish misses your top water. Mid lake to up lake has tons of shad in the backs of pockets so throw small spinnerbaits and rooster tails to catch these fish chasing shad. Also, a Shakey Head rigged with a small finesse worm has been working around the boat ramps and rip rap lake wide. Fish are on the smaller side but you will be able to get a small limit. Buzz baits and other top water lures are producing real well for all size fish, including large bass. This bite may last for only an hour or two each morning, but can last much longer on cloudy days. Pop R’s, Chug Bug’s, Torpedo’s, and buzz baits will work. A few fish are also hitting spinner baits, especially around wood cover. Docks and boat houses are holding bass that are hitting soft plastics and jigs mostly. Try a 6 Zoom Dead Ringer in June bug with a 3/16 ounce weight. Anglers have GPS Bass fishing locations and a BASS FISHING WEST POINT LAKE book is for sale. Ask ken for a sample. This book is $39.00. Sample just e mail ken@southernfishing.com
