Anyone fishing down here lately? Just wondering if the bass are active in this area right now. Haven't seen any reports lately. Thanks

We had the Mo-Yak Fishing Series tournament Saturday. There was 136 bass reported to the tournament app between 30 anglers. They either fished the Rockaway Beach or Empire Park areas. Took 81.5" to win (best 5) and had a 21" big bass. I took 4th, all mine were fairly shallow, and on a variety of baits, mainly the Spro Rat 40, BronzeEye Frog, 3.8" Skinny Dipper, and a green pumpkin 6" senko.

Got a very stern reprimand for misinformation in an email this morning and truly apologize.  Good buddy of mine had told me that his son placed in the top 3 using a black buzz bait and his big fish was 19 inches.

Reprimand stated that the 2nd place finisher did not catch them on a black buzz bait but on a white buzz bait and his big fish was 21" instead of 19"

My entire reason for posting was to give congrats to these guys for a great day on the water and that yes there is a bass bite on lower Taney.

If any of you went out a bought a gross of black buzz baits and headed down there I hope my misinformation did not ruin your day.  If the future I will watch my information and try to verify it in triplicate before posting.

Back to the original topic are the bass biting, I'm going to say yes with much guarded reservation.

Most guys I've seen use both colors during the day depending what time of day it is.

Does it really matter?  Rule of thumb being white for bright and black for nite.  I have thrown both in either situation, and it seems it you get it in front of one that wants a buzzard they will slurp it regardless of the color.  Couple of years ago with the water was up on Bull on the brightest day out there a buddy and I were fishing a white and a black and we got the same number of bites on a brite cloudless day.  Just had to tick the right branch.  That was when the water was up nice.  I really cannot remember ever catching that many for such a long period.  They were just wanting a buzz bait.

Lots of guys on Table Rock will fish the bluff pockets with the black this time of the year, clear in the backs of those little cuts, throwing it over the debris that is always back there providing shade.  I have seen some very nice bags come in doing this.  Most always LM on these locations.
