I have another of my club tournaments next Saturday. The top water bite has not arrived for me. I have been catching a few in the mornings ( texas rig), but the day time heat drives the bite way down. I would appreciate any suggestions to help fill me 3 fish limit with lunkers.

What is the lake like? If there is heavy grass mats or lily pads try a frog or punching w/ an ounce weight and a texas rig. If there are any deep points dragging Carolina rig or a football head should be productive.

locally I have been killing with a top water popper and a unweighted senko type stick bait, let it fall and do nothing weight at least 4 minutes give it a wiggletwich then wieght more. I have also had some luck with a fast moving shallow crank. find the shade, fish will be there.

I belong to the Pure Rod and Gun club. About 300 acres with the deepest around 16 ft. We do have some areas that are weedy but not with matts. Being that it is a bass club it is heavily fished. I always try to introduce something that is not commonly used. Bass use to go crazy for the Zoom flukes, until everyone was fishing them.
