Several 4-7 pound bass were caught this week. Mostly in the evening hours. They were hitting frogs and spinners but not always having on. Plastic or live worms are landing them for sure as well as creature baits. Bluegill are hanging out along the thick weed line around the shore. Crappie are just being so picky you really have to know what your doing and find the hot spot. Early morning is the best or late late evenings. Cat fishing has really picked up this week. We have seen as little as one pound all the wya up to 28 pounds! Mackerel and anchovies are the key.
