Lake Travis - Boy oh boy, I'm not sure if they could care less about my lures.

Hoping to get a bit of advice before my spots all get destroyed with the upcoming tournaments.

 

I've been on a bit of a dry-spell as of late and haven't caught anything in almost two weeks. I went from catching bass like crazy to nothing (though I managed to snag a nice white drum). My go-to's are baby bass/watermelon colored senkos, lipless shad and craw crankbaits, green pumpkin and watermelon red flake rage craws, and a couple different swim baits... and I've gotten nothing.

 

I went to one of my old stomping grounds remembering that there were bass beds and sure enough saw a ton of them including a whopper or two and exactly the same issue. They wanted absolutely nothing to do with anything I was throwing.

 

What's the deal? Do I have to wait another few weeks until they move away from their beds to catch anything? Don't get me wrong, I'm loving this weather and the worst day of fishing is always better than a day in the office but I'd like to grab something lol

Throw the ned - It's a technique that is known to work very well out there year round. After that, dropshot. Remember, not all of the bass are spawning at the same time. If you can't get the spawners to bite, target the pre or post spawners in the area. Report back

Sweet dude, thanks! I'll give it a shot!

So quick update... it did not work. The bass don't want to have anything to do with anything, and in fact swim away from every. single. lure. I can see their beds very clearly, and even when I plant the ned/senko directly in it they won't touch it. They just swim hesitantly around it. Never seen anything like it, but guess I'm just going to have to wait for them to move out.
