Water temps mid 50s, what baits would you guys throw? Topwaters out of the question?
Thanks for any input,
Jaimy

Time to use baits that have a phase to them, crankbaits, rubber, gliders and jerkbaits.

Topwater would not be my first choice. I suppose if you had a few people in the boat and maybe calm water and evening it might not hurt to throw one for a bit. I would certainly always have some kind of rubber in the water at all times though.

This is for a 7 hour tournament on a small 112 acre private lake. Clear water, steep shorelines with lots of docks and timber. I love hawg wobblers but thought water may be too cold but hope not.

Tourny is basically for fun to raise a little money for the lake association. I've never fished the lake and my brother in law has only fished it for bass. Thanks for input.
