Funny you mentioned the zara spook, cause i was just about to break out a spook when the lightning started yesterday afternoon. After that warm rain came through yesterday morning, the fish at my home lake in Goldsboro were in a prespawn pattern and were really busting on shad. I caught a quick limit of both bass and crappie. Almost all were caught on a jighead grub and live shad. I've gotta good feeling about this week!I was able to get out for a few hours today, I caught 5 bass in an hour and a half using yum dingers and wooly bugs. Fish were in 3ft or less.
A few other people showed up while I was out there a guy caught a 6 pounder on a zara spook, I would have never thought to use a top water this time of the year.
Get out there they are biting.
