I guided a good friend of mine on bass on 5/23, and the bass bite at Smithville has just started! The bass are super shallow on laydowns in the back of creeks out of the wind. I did the best with plastics, but I imagine a jig would be good too.
Bass fishing has, well, stunk at Smithville up until now. But I beleive that the spawn is ON now.
I caught a nice 7 pound female that was right on the bank in the middle of a big laydown tree!
