The bass have transitioned into summer patterns… but not your traditional patterns.  I am finding most of my best action in shallow water.  The grass is growing very well is several areas of the lake particularly on the Rio Grande side.  Most fish will not react well to quick moving topwater presentations and subsurface lures are your best bet.  The water levels are steady and there is some stained water in the rivers but the main lake is beginning to clear with the growth of vegetation both hydrilla and pond weed.  A typical outing is producing 10-15 bites for an 8 hour day.  I recently concluded my annual kids fishing camp and you can check out some of the action at

Current Patterns -   

Shallow:  Stick with slow moving texas rigs and some early morning topwaters.  Poppers are working best worked very slowly in the 1-5 feet depths.  Key on flats that have some kind of transition to deep water close by.  The backs of the creeks and rivers are most definitely producing best.  The square bill is working very well also with the key being covering as much water as possible.

Mid-Depth:  Football jigs and heavier texas rigs are working some in the 15-20 foot range.  Work these techniques closely near deep water access.  Some nice sized smallies are being caught this summer!

 Deep:  The drop-shot bite in the deep water does not seem to be as effective this summer… yet.  Keeping looking for more fish to transition to deep water as the surface water temperature continues to climb.
