I love fishing timber its my favorite cover to fish. For me its hard to beat a jig but then again jig is my go to for every situation but if I find a tree or branches that broke off in storms and are now in the water I almost always get a fish off it with a jig crashing in and all around it.

For me, nothng beats the excitment of running a squarebilled crank through some wood and bumping it off something, having it deflect and then WHAM!!! Thats how I would attack any wood first, if they won't come up and smack that, then I flip or pitch a jig in there..........if that don't work..............I fish some other type of cover.

Depends on how thick the cover is. If I can run a squarebill through it there isn't anything that triggers quite as well as that seems to. Make sure you spool up with quality line doing this though. I use 15lb fluoro to help with the abrasions and check your line often and retie when it's needed. Best tournament I ever had was running squarebills through wood at Truman Lake in Missouri. A spinnerbait, swim jig, buzzbait, or topwater fished through them can be great too. Of course there's always the obvious flipping a jig or your plastic bait of choice into it also.

Any kind of flipping or pitching bait, square billed crank bait and spinnerbait. And for the scum i would use spro frogs.

Jig and pig. I would drop it straight down next to one of those trees that are still standing.

Why not just do the exact same thing you did to catch the 7.6? a 7.6 is a great fish anywhere let alone upstate NY.

Square bill crank baits and pitching Jig n Pig. Crash the square bills off the sides and pause it just for a moment. Don't just zoom it past the timber as you don't always know which way they're facing. If you smash it into the wood and pause, they'll likely turn to that direction from the disturbance, that pause will give them a chance to burst out for it. Keep at it, timber is always a great source for nice bass.

Sorry for repetitive answer from WW2Farmer. I must have scrolled past it. my mistake, but great advice.
