Bass fishing has been good. The topwater bite is getting cranked up for the summer. Buzzbaits in white, black or chartreuse and jr spooks in silver flake or bone and pop-r's in silver/black or bone are all good choices.
Rocky points are good locations to find bass early and late for the topwater bite. When shopping for a topwater rod, I would recommend the Cabela's jerkbait/topwater rod. Designed specifically for this technique.
Shorter handle and a soft tip with plenty of backbone. Finesse worms in green pumpkin, melon/red have been good. Try a neko rig with a Cabela's go-to stick bait. A molded in "o" ring makes rigging easy and catches multiple fish on one bait.
White bass fishing is fair. Finding schools of bait over deep water is key to finding the fish. A tail spinner or large rooster tail is good for catching deeper white bass.
The lake is clear, a bit above pool and in the low 80's.
There are several fishing activities going on at the Bowling Green Cabelas this and next weekend. Come on out!
Wear your PFD and take the family fishing.
