Experienced fisherman are claiming out lake is during over for the sans. All the fish are in different places, handing around in deeper places, and biting on usual baits. We have has several people out for Catfish using mackerel and anchovies fishing around 20-30 feet deep catching some really nice largemouth bass. Small bass hit on white yellow silverfish, click shads, and swim baits. Polar opposite what shave been hearing in the past. Crappie are running very deep around 30 feet on very small plastic minnows. Bluegills and redear are still hiting on red worms about 5 feet down.
