Bass: Fair action. Water is very stained, so noisy baits are your best bet, and adding a little chartreuse to your plastics is a good idea, too. Use a chartreuse dye pen to color the tail. Throw top-water lures in the morning and evening hours such as Pop-R’s Pencil Poppers, Zara Spooks and buzzbaits. Rattletraps, Spinnerbaits, jigs with rattles and Senkos will work better in the heat of the day. Fish the backs of coves. Most fish are being caught in fairly shallow water. Remember to practice catch and release.
