Hubby and I pre-fished S. Center and got smoked any help that you guys can give me would be great. I need advice on locations and colors hell even the types of lures to use. I can't stand the lake simply because my boat breaks everytime I'm on it.

Your probably in that annual Bass tourney they have.

I have only fished it once for Eyes there is a bar that runs across the center of the lake. I'd focus on that bar for starters as well as the emergent vegetation on the west end of the bar. Also try the area of the saddle about 1/2 mile north of the bar I just spoke about. Work the weedline in this location.

I'm not much of a Bass guy but I'm thinking super slow presentations along weedlines this time of year.

Don't be to discouraged its going to be a tough bite for everbody.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpfull.
Lets us know how you do.
Good Luck.

Hey Fishngrrl,

No secret here..but the base of the weedlines are key right now. Especially ones that are near deeper water.. the nearer the deep weedline is to deep water the better it will be. Personally I have found a smaller jig n' pig, or a 3-5 inch curl tail grub fished on a jig head slowly hopped along the bottom to be an especially good presentation at this time. A small spinnerbait slow rolled along the base of the weedline is another option I have done well with at this time of year.

As to more specific areas on South Center ..HotSpots has a map out that is a pretty good starting point and allows you to make great jumps on the learning curve. You can basically know the entire lakes underwater structure and cover types before you hit the water.. then go out and prefish those general high percentage spots and fine tune your map to the place you have the exact casts you want to make down in your head when the tournament starts.

The Hotspots map info is:

Stock Number: 20-48
Price: 5.95
Publisher: Fishing HotSpots

Should be available from lots of local tackle dealers and sometimes even local bookstores. Hope that gives you a few new ideas to try out. Good luck in the tournament!

Good Fishing To Ya,

I've fished that lake. If the wind is out of the west, fish the east side of the bar... wind out of the east, fish the west side of the bar. I've caught some nice bass in that lake, but have had to go through a bunch of little stuff to get them. Last time I was there, they were hitting on leeches. Might want to try a dark colored Texas Rig and drag it through the weedlines. Grape Culprits would probably work well. Use a little dibble dabble on the tail smile smiley
