BRANSON, Mo. - If the spawn is not yet on and the water is clear, the pros can show you what bass fishing lures to throw.

For their third tournament of the year, the Bassmaster Elite Series angler plied the cool waters of Table Rock Lake. With frosty morning conditions and temps rising only into the 50s, the pros fished under prespawn conditions for smallmouth, largemouth and spotted bass on the clear mountain lake. The fish were active as they fed heavily on crawfish and dying shad.

In those conditions, the top 12 anglers were asked to show what they throw.
