Topwater, flukes or swimbaits, cranks. Will keep one or two summer presentations handy - shakyhead and c-rig usually - because the weather will bounce back forth. Have had a lot of success lately w/ wacky rigged stick baits. Softy's stuff has been real good to me of late. Great for follow-up to a missed topwater strike and for working submerged cover.

Figuring out the bait is the key. If you can find the bait when it is suspended, and figure out the correct presentation to trigger the fish, you can nail big sacks. If you don't figure out that key piece of info, it sucks. This can be one of my favorite or least favorite times of year to fish, depending on whether I have found them or not haha.

I like to throw jigs alot this time of year. Because when the water is going down fast like it is now, the crawdads have to find new dens & are out moving alot more & the fish key on them alot more, esp on norris where the water is being pulled wide open for 12 hrs a day right now.
