The water temperatures are now in the high 70's with little varience between the coves and the main body. The bass are all in their typical summer pattern now. They are in the best coves above the Georgetown Yacht Basin, such as Halls, Freeman, McGill, Turner's, and Lloyd's. Some of the larger bass were in the grass beds along some of the cliff areas in 4-6 feet of water, but the majority of 1-3 pound largemouths were in the coves, in wood, grass, or pads, or combinations of all three. They were typically holding in 1-3 feet of water, and hit topwaters early in the day, and during cloud cover. When the sun was bright, they were using the docks and overhanging trees as shade and ambush points. The best times were during the first half of the incoming tide, and the last half of the outgoing. Crankbaits, buzzbaits, frogs, and soft plastics were the keys. The jig bite in some of the docks was decent, but they still seemed to prefer the Senko, or 'IKA' tube, flipped or pitched in, with a 3/8 ounce, Tungsten weight. Heavy line in the 20-30 pound class is required due the cover. In the more sparse or open areas, you can get away with lighter line, but in most areas the water is very stained, so you can still go with 14-17 pound test even in the clearer areas. There is some water Chesnut forming in the back of Turner's again, but is still sparse at this point.
