    LAKE RUSSELL IS DOWN .98 FEET 80S


    Bass fishing is fair. There is still a shad spawn but this will slow soon. Spinnerbaits in chartreuse and white buzz baits and frogs are working in the morning. As that slows throw a Little Earl Crankbait in pearl and chartreuse that dives 4 to 6 feet and work the docks with June bug red lizards and Trick Worms. A ChatterBait and a Zoom Methiolate Trick worm tare good choices. Top water prop baits and frogs will all work. Use top water early then a shaky head or creature bait in green pumpkin with chartreuse ends. Soon bass will migrate out to the ends of the points and creek channels in 8 to 15 feet of water. Ride these areas with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology and “find” the fish first. Be prepared for a lot of boat traffic by midday. Always have a pearl Zoom Super Fluke rigged and use it on every stop.
