    LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN 1.2 FEET, CLEAR, 60íS

    Bass fishing is fair. Remember this time of year is all about the bait find it and you are more than likely going to find the fish. The fish are holding tight to some form of wood cover. Bass are in the brush piles in around seven feet of water and deeper. Small jigs and small worms are the best early. Use the Red Shad color for any stained or off color water and the pearl for the clear water, especially south of the Highway 72 Bridge. Use 12 pound test Sufix Elite clear line and a 1/4 ounce Bullet weight. Remember this time of year is all about the bait find it and you are more than likely going to find the fish. Try the 4/0 VMC hook on the three inch and a 5/0 on the four inch. Locating deep water brush piles on your Lowrance is necessary to find the bait and then the bass. Submerged stumps on the backside of the points are good areas as the weather gets colder. When fishing water deeper than five feet, be sure to fish the bait slow and don't be afraid to make several presentations into each area.
