Lake Greeson's Largemouth Bass have big appetites and aggressive behavior.
bass in lake Greeson feed on shad, bream, crayfish, worms, lizards, insects, mice, small
birds, and frogs. Black bass and their food are
usually found in and around cover. Black bass typically use logs, docks,
underwater ridges, submerged brush, moss and rocks for cover.
In Lake Greeson, black bass will start spawning when water temperatures reaches
degrees F. The males move into shallower water on gravel flats, points and
humps. The largemouth spends most of its time
in its home range, a small, concealed area of deep cover, quietly waiting
for food to come its way.

55 - 65 degrees F. at 5-20 feet deep The warming temperatures of spring draw the bass into shallow waters where
they actively feed until spawning. March through June are Lake Greeson's
prime bass fishing months. As water temperatures start climbing above 50 F.,
bass begin to feed aggressively.
65 - 70 degrees F., less than 10 feet deep
Use slow rolled spinner baits, shallow running crankbaits, worming or
flipping worms, salt craws, lizards, and jig'n pig combinations for bass in
less than 10 feet of water. As bass become more active, use jerk baits.
SUMMER BASS FISHING:
75 degrees F. and warmer
1-20 feet deep
As upper lake layers warm, bass typically go deep to cooler waters. In
summer, bass will surface to feed, generally before dawn and
after dusk. When bass are on top, use buzzbaits or propbaits. When bass are deep,
fish a light line and split shot, with small plastic worms or grubs, off
rocky or brushy lake points.
FALL AND WINTER FISHING"
40-65 degrees F. at 1-60 feet deep
Fall fishing is the reverse of spring. Retrieve faster in early fall and
slower in late fall. In winter, go very deep and extremely slow off lake
points with jigging spoons and small plastics.
