well, it has been here and gone, and things will change once again, but this past full moon cycle was pretty darn good for catching lots of bass. out of the last 4 trips a total of 48 keepers were boated. one bass over 5, a few 4 lb. range and several 3 lbers. plenty of shorts in the mix also. so, there was plenty of fairly constant action.
3/4 GrassJig has done most of the damage, but we have caught several on a 1 oz. Elite bladed jig we have been tinkering with. bass have been relating to points quite a bit, and steep of flat will both produce provided they match up with the depth the bass want to be. yep, some of these places are out in the nose bleed section. meaning you are about 4 long casts to the bank. a certain depth of water is just the same right close to the bank or a quarter mile out in the lake.
some bass have set up residence in 25 ft. of water and in some areas of the lake, there will be many more follow. weather will be a major factor and area of the lake will be a factor as to whether the local population moves out deeper or shallower. there will be some areas that will contain both shallow bass and the deeper ones that are following the thermocline.
will be interesting to see what the next moon cycle will bring.
