What's the best Bass lure to use in Georgia Lakes?

Dear Captain"What's the best Bass lure to use in March in West Point Lake, Georgia?"

Best time to fish that lake is in the spring. So you picked the right time to fish it. According to a study I read, they said the gizzard shad was what the largemouth mostly ate in the spring. So I would bring and use an assortment of Strike King baits like the KVD Series in colors Sexy Shad and Green Gizzard Shad. The lake is fairly deep with a average depth of 23 feet. So be sure your crankbaits can cover the water column from top to bottom. Shallow divers to baits going down 20 feet or so. It is rocky with very little submerged structure. It has rocky points and humps, so if you find some underwater woody debris, this should concentrate some largemouth bass.

There are also plenty of spotted bass in the lake. If you find any spawning bass, I would have a selection of plastics I could throw at them. Personally, I tend to gravitate to lizard and creature baits to flip at any bedding bass. That lake borders the Alabama/Georgia line, so I would check with each State to see about fishing licenses. I know some states that have bordering lakes would have a reciprocal agreement on the licenses. Another thing I would do before I bass fish, is definitely take into consideration the major and minor periods around the new and full moons. Good luck and send us some pictures of your catch!
