    Most all the bass we have been catching lately are from grass fishing. Pitching worms like a 9 inch Super Ringer or 11 inch Hog Wild in colors of red shad(stained water) or plum(clearer water). A 1/4 oz. weight in most situations has been working well but once it gets hot with a bright sun I have sometimes had to go to a heavy 3/4 oz. weight and punch it through the deeper(5-7 ft.) heavily matted grass.
    We have also been catching them on a Pork Shad(fluke) in watermelon and junebug(stained water) colors. Bayou Bullfrogs during the heat of the day have been working good too.
    Good numbers of smaller kentucky and largemouth bass on the Big Cypress above the Gov't Ditch using shallow diving Bandits and Pop-r's has been working at times early in the day too. Water temps are ranging from 87 to 96 degrees.

    Water temps have been ranging

    Water temps have been ranging from 84 early in the day to 94 later in the day. The lake is a little low and on a slow fall. Most all the bass lately have mostly come on a V&M Pork Shad in colors of watermelon/red and junebug fishing them over and through the hydrilla and pads on the creek and slough edges. Texas rigged red shad or black/blue 9 inch Super Ringer worms bounced off the bottom in the same type cover has brought in some larger bass, especially once the sun gets high. The Bayou Bullfrogs in colors of watermelon or black will catch bass from the heavy matted grass and duckweed mix also.

      Water temps have been ranging

      Water temps have been ranging from 81 early in the day to 87 later in the day. The lake is a little low and on a slow fall. A Cyclone Lightning Blade has been working pretty decent on the cypress trees in 1-3 ft. of water. The grass fish have been coming on a V&M Pork Shad in colors of watermelon/red and junebug fishing them over and through the hydrilla and pads on the creek and slough edges.

          Water temps have been ranging

          Water temps have been ranging from 63 early in the day to 69 later in the day. The lake is 2 ft. low, but stable. The bass are beginning to get more aggressive as the water cools and they will only get better with time. Most of the bass have come out of the grass and pad mix using a V&M Pork Shad(super fluke) in colors of watermelon/red and junebug fishing them over and through the hydrilla and pads on the creek and slough edges. Texas rigged watermelon candy/chartreuse tail High Tails(brushhog) pitched along the edges of the creeks and on the cypress trees are working well. We have really caught some nice sized bass this past week, including several 5-7 lb. bass.

            Bass fishing is great right no

            Bass fishing is great right now. With the cooler water temps the bass are just now beginning their fall feeding frenzy and can be caught on a variety of lures from topwaters to Texas rigged worms. The bass bite has gotten better over the last week and will only get better over the next days and weeks to come. Find the roaming shad along the vegetation and the bass will be nearby. My largest this past week went 8.33 using a Shad colored V&M Pork Shad. Clients caught 7 bass this past week over 6lb. up to 8lb along with many other quality sized bass. Water temps have been ranging from 56 early in the day to 61 later in the day. The lake levels are stabile and 1.5 to 2 ft. low. The white and yellow bass can be caught in the Big Cypress River channel using small spoons and tail spinners hopped off the bottom. Crappie fishing is great using shiners and jigs. Most are being caught inside the pads lining the Big Cypress in 4-7 ft. of water.

                          The lake is slowly falling and

                          The lake is slowly falling and is at about 169.22 as of today, normal pool is 168.50. Water temps are ranging from 55-62 degrees and most of the lake is stained.
                          Bass are good on a variety of lures like rattletraps and Cyclone Lightnin' Blades over the open water grass are producing and many times you may find the bass(males) stacked in these areas. Some good Trap colors to try are tequila, red, or shad colors in the stained water.
                          A V&M Super Hightail around the cypress in colors of watermelon, black/blue, or black/red have been catching some good sized bass when fished in 4-6 ft. of water. Watermelon flukes like the V&M Pork Shad fished over the open grass is picking up some decent bass also.
                          Crappie are fair. Most can be caught up the main channel above the ditch using small jigs off the bottom around laydowns and boat docks.

                                  The water temps have dropped about 16 degrees from 72 to 56 in the mornings in the past 36-48 hrs with the cold arctic blast that has pushed through. The lake is a few inches high and stable.
                                  The water should warm back this week with the warmer temps on the way. Most of our fish over the past few days have been coming on light colored spinnerbaits and swimjigs fished around the shallow cypress and vegetation mix.
                                  Junebug, watermelon, and redbug colored lizards and senko type baits are working on the cypress also. The vegetation like pads and hydrilla are beginning to top out on the lake so get your flukes, frogs, and buzzbaits ready because once the water warms the topwater bite should be hot for the next couple of months.
