Usually you'll run into all sizes of fish, says John Tanner, a Lake Fork, Tex., guide. Tanner explains that you might catch 10 three-pounders before you hook a really big one, because they're all running together. From there, move out to a nearby point, run your graph and throw a Carolina rig or whatever you want to use. Part of the confusion that surrounds the post-spawn comes from the fact that this is the one time of year when you can catch fish on just about any lure in your tackle box. Whether it's flipping, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, topwaters or floating worms, if you stick with your strengths you'll catch fish.
