Spring 2017

Fall on Caddo,there will be several patterns working. One of the best patterns is fishing a frog over and around the pads and grass on the main lake area. Look  for key areas, where the pads make a point or opening in the middle of them. Flipping the many Cypress Trees on the main lake with 7/16 oz black-blue Southpaw Jig tipped with a black blue craw or a Texas Rigged black-red flake or junebug lizard rigged with a ¼ Tungsten weight will be a big bite producer.

 If the wind is calm I like to throw weightless Texas rigged watermelon red or red shad  Wave Worm Shadick over the grass. Normally they are not very aggressive, so the slow fall of the trick worm or Fluke type bait will get there attention. Remember to look for the grass and pad mixtures when fishing this pattern.

If there is current in the bayous a white and black back or crawfish crankbaits fished around the mouths of the bayous will catch good numbers of bass.
