My efforts rewarded me with immediate results, and I boated an unlimited amount of cookie cutter size spotted bass around two pounds. Action was fast and furious and the water temperature in this area was 61 degrees.
I tied on the same presentation to a 20 lb fluorocarbon setup, and set my minn Kota fortrex into spot lock. I walked to the back of the boat and made the longest casts possible to maximize depth/bottom contact. This was definitely the deal and it allowed me to boat several fish in the three pound class.
As the afternoon progressed into evening I ran to the South end of the lake to look for bed fish. I saw several descent sized bass on beds as I worked my way to the backs of coves. I found a bank with some active feeding fish and I slow rolled my swimbait through the area they were located. I caught two bass in the miniature variety before I slopped into a feeding frenzy of crappie.
