Bass fishing is good. Start early throwing a buzz bait or a top water prop bait such as a Stanford Turbo Shad. Look for grass beds that are near ditches with at least 10 feet of water right next to the grass lines. Keep a Zoom Super Fluke is pearl rigged all day for any action on the surface. As always use the Lowrance Structure Scan technology can unlock areas and see fish that traditional sonar cannot see. If there are holes in the grass use a buzz bait and a frog. A Big Bite Baits Top Toad is a good bait to use and catches really big bass. When throwing the Top Toad in the grass use heavy 60 pound test Sunline FX2 braid and a 5/0 Gamakatsu EWG hook. This is the best hook to rig this bait as it fits it perfectly. After the sun comes up get out the flipping sticks and flip flip flip. Cover as much as waster as possible down a grass line. The fish seem to have been grouped up in the grass so when you get a bite there will likely be another right away.
