Mark nailed it right on dot. Just to add alittle more, bass in the 1-1.5lb range are plentiful and are found just about everywhere (flats/rocks/trees). You'll catch these all day with the drop-shot, darterhead or splitshot. The full fall bite is right around the corner because all of the fish we caught there last week were spitting out shad and baby panfish when hooked. The jig bite will nail you larger fish, single tail yamamoto trailer did it for me also, 3/8 football in bama bug with 5" single tail in grn/pumpkin/blk flake did it for me. Also, don't count out carolina or texas rigged plastics dragged or hopped slowly deep in the hot hour days for your lunker fish, brush hog, senco's, lizards or your favorite piece of plastic should do. 25-60ft in the hot hour days. If fishing at night, big fish are shallow, 2-15ft. I'd recommend the night bite right now, 50+ fish are possible with an occasional lunker in between. Just becareful if fishing on boat, there are alot of underwater structure that can make your night miserable.
