Level: 1.4 feet low. Temp: 78 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.
Bass: Good. Robert and Rick Tindell won Valley’s tournament on Sunday, catching a few on topwater and several on hydrilla edges. “They’re on those hydrilla edges now,” said Robert. “I like to flip a worm in there, let if fall and they’ll usually hit it when it hits the bottom.” Target grass lines in 10 to 15 feet of water, and parallel the edges with either a Texas- or Carolina-rigged worm. Robert prefers a Texas-rig Zoom Ultra Vibe in junebug. You can also take a 1-oz. bullet weight and a worm and let it fall into the hydrilla. “I think it’s a little cleaner down at the bottom, and that’s why they hit at the bottom so much,” said Robert. “It’s actually a pretty weedless rig. If they don’t hit it on the bottom, just pull it up and down. Sometimes they’ll hit it on the edge.” Expect some fish on shallow grasslines five- to 10-feet deep of water very early in the morning. For those fish, try Lunker Lures, buzzbaits and Pop-Rs.
