As we move into the month of June, bass fishing  normally shifts to a deep structure pattern . Hungry post spawn bass can normally be caught around  submerged road beds, pond dams and deep brush piles.Zoom Ol Monster or Mag 2  worms, pig n jigs , and Bomber Fat Free citrus shad crankbaits are the normal baits of choice.Look for fish in 12-20 feet of water----- Also a  few fish always seem to  stay shallow. Topwaters, Buzz Baits and Senkos are good choices if you want to try shallow, especially early in the morning. One key pattern is to look for bream beds or May Fly hatches.---- Spotted bass also move to deeper cover . A  Zoom shaky head worm on a Tommyhead jig will work around blowdowns, bluff walls, and bridge pilings.       

In June,  focus on the main lake, mostly south of Hwy 109 bridge. Downlining with live bait is highly effective.Try live shad or shiners for awesome results. Look for fish to be holding around humps and drop-offs near the  channels of most all the creeks in 15-25 feet of water. Topwater fishing is usually very good as well.The fish should  start schooling on the surface and can be caught on popping cork rigs or by trolling small crankbaits.

The crappie have moved to deep water for the most part. Try pitching small jigs around or under docks or into deeper brush piles for the spawned out fish. There are lots of deep brush piles in the pockets near many of the boat docks, especially in the Liberty Hill & Yellow Jacket Creek areas.  You may have to work a little harder to find them, but the fishing can be really good for Crappie when you do find them.--- Night fishing is usually very good during June. Try tying up under a bridge ,grab a bucket of minnows ,put out some lights and enjoy the cooler night air.

Normally overlooked, June  is a good month to catch bedding bream. Search the back end of pockets, especially those with hard bottom or stumps. Use crickets or live worms 2-3 feet under a float for some real fun.

Expect good catfishing in the river from Ringer access to Franklin. Fish the deeper holes with cut bait, worms, chicken liver, or frozen shrimp to target channel cats. Bottle or Jug fishing can be fun for the entire family. The flathead catfish seem to prefer live bait. Try live shad, live bream, or bass shiners for a chance at a 20 lb.+ fish.Night fishing for them can be very good.
