Water temps are ranging from 49-55. The lake is at normal levels but should rise above normal levels after the weekend rain.
Bass are hitting a variety of lures right now such as traps and spinnerbaits, stick with your light or shad colors. These are mainly being used in or over the grass flats. Jigs and soft plastics in the grass and on the cypress are catching some decent bass also. Brown and Tennessee Shad colored crankbaits on the cypress trees in 3-6 ft. of water are catching bass also.
Crappie are fair right now. Shiners and 1/16 oz. jigs in most any color combo will catch Crappie from around the edges of the grass and pads on the channel drops. Try fishing the laydowns on the edges of the steeper drops in the river also.
We have also been catching some big numbers of huge white bass in the Big Cypress channel...when they are up schooling most any topwater or trap will work and when down try using tailspinners, spoons, and traps hopped off the bottom.
