    LAKE RUSSELL IS FULL, CLEAR, 70íS

    Bass fishing is fair. As summer patterns emerge, fishing can be very good one day and not so good the next day. Recent showers have created some small mud lines at the mouths of the creeks and secondary points. These mud lines will be excellent places to fish early in the morning and/or late in the evening. The #5 Glass Shad Raps on light line can get this bait a little deeper under the mud lines. The top water bite is fair, but with the warming water temperatures don t expect to catch one every day when using top water baits. Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology can these areas. Set the Down scan in auto depth. Set the left and right beams to five times the depth. Zoom lizards in the four and 6 inch sizes rigged either Texas or Carolina style around the deeper water wood will find quality bass. Bass are tight to cover while the smaller spotted bass can be seen roaming the banks all during the day. Deep water cranking is good with the Rapala DT 10, Deep We R s and Deep Down Husky Jerks. Isolated structure like stumps and rocks are excellent places and this is where the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology can unlock these areas. Set the Down scan in auto depth. Set the left and right beams to five times the depth.
