Water temps are in the low to mid 50's and steadily rising. The bass are just starting to migrate toward the shallows but for the most part are still holding up on mainlake points, grass edges, and drop-offs. Jerkbaits, drop-shots, and shaky head worms are still the go-to lures but think about throwing a rattletrap or some other kind of crankbait if the water temps move up into the upper 50s. The crappie anglers are starting to show up. Most are concentrating their efforts along mainlake points and brushpiles while some others are looking into the deeper creeks like Ashcraft and McDougal. One report of crappie along shallow cover came in over the weekend so the crappie are fairly spread out right now, so look for the bite to really pick up over the next few weeks. Try both minnows and jigs as both are working.
