A good current break is a rock upriver. The spots will sit right behind the rock to ambush prey as it washes by. Throw your bait upriver, and tight-line it over the structure. If there is no current, fish brushpiles on the main lake in 12 to 25 feet of water with worms and jigs.

Target largemouth with flukes and jigs around any structure close to spawning pockets and deeper water. The larger females will hang out in 4 to 6 feet of water around stumps, laying trees and docks before heading back out when the water rises above 80.

The bass bite is coming fishing bluff river banks below Mitchell dam with a shaky-head worm, and main-lake points are producing good, as well. The spotted bass turn on when Mitchell is releasing water. Just throw your worm right up on the bank, and work it out into 15 feet or so. Most of my bites happen right up against the bank, though.

The water being pulled gives the mean Coosa spots just enough cover to wait for an easy meal. Work 1/4-oz. shaky heads like a green-pumpkin Zoom Trick Worm fishing along the banks. Cast upriver, and work the bait at a 45-degree angle out into 20 feet of water.

Spotted bass are biting early up shallow on humps and against main-lake seawalls. Catching them on white buzzbaits and floating jerkbaits in a shad pattern. After the first couple of hours of the day, you can catch a few spots around docks on a shaky-head worm.

on October 16th

Crankbaits are only one of a dozen types of lures an angler can fish in and around Jordan Lake’s grass, wood cover and rock cover. Fishing a jig combo along this cover is a big bass tactic (great lure choice around any weedy impoundment like Jordan Lake usually at full pool during the winter months), and there are loads of cover for an angler to target on this lake
