Need help finding bass

Post By: cardo      Posted: 8/29/2019 6:35:36 AM     Points: 788    
Taking my float tube to Ridgeway on Sept 10th. Never been there before. Does anyone have ideas where to find the smallies ? I planned on using spinners, hula poppers and surface plugs unless there's better ways. Any help would be appreciated.

All that I use is tube jigs around the rocks near shore. Tubes are 3 to 5 inches.

I've only fished there once but the bass would not hit anything on the bottom. No tubes, jigs, or craws. The key was suspending baits, like stickbaits. Just gotta find what they're relating to and what mood there in for that time of year.
