Boy are the fish big this week. We didn’t see a lot of crappie but when we did they were right at 2 lbs. Nearly every bass was over 4 lbs. caught with live worms. Sunfish are loving the red worms and meal worms again this week all about the live bait. Talk of the week at 22 lb. Channel Cat caught Saturday by Albert using mackerel on the bottom.
