Last week I had trips on Johns Lake on the 22nd and 23rd, both days started out the same way, with some good schooling action first thing in the morning in the Deer Island cut and limited schooling action in the Horse Shoe area. Once the schooling activity passed, it was a lot of moving around and working grass beds and lily pads to catch the bass the rest of the day. Shiners of course were the top producer with bass up to 7 pounds being caught. Artificial baits that had produced were spinner baits, senko type baits and rattle traps. Winds both days had dictated how the bite was going to be, and it was a very light bite, with the spinner baits having to be slow rolled and soft plastics worked very slowly with a small bullet weight pegged, to help the bait with a slow fall rate, most hits came on that slow fall and were all in 5 to 8 foot of water.
