Good Morning, Lance. I haven't been on Carter's for a while and I hope someone who has been will jump in here and talk about it. Past experience tells me soft plastic finesse worms work 12 months a year on this lake. Spinner baits, cranks and jigs will all produce this time of year. The key is not so much color and technique, but location. Up in the river if you can find stained water, all of those techniques will be working right now (early morning buzzbaits and topwaters like poppers and walking baits especially). In the main lake with the steeper banks, rocks and deep humps your drop shot and shakey head rigs with finesse worms in the green pumpkin varieties and morning dawn colors will work. Finesse jigs in green pumpkin or peanut butter and jelly colors with twin tail trailers in green pumpkin and cinnamon/black flake colors will work also (be sure to experiment with chartreuse spiking on the tails of your trailers and your finesse worms). Your crankbaits and spinnerbaits need to mimic small bluegill perch right now in the shallow water, and shad in the deeper water.
Hope this helps.
