Fishing Was Pretty Decent This Week

Fishing was pretty decent this week. Water clarity didn’t improve, some say it looks worse than last week. Green pumpkin senko, hologram roboworms or baby bass swin bait were the best lures of the week. Texas rig is the style. Some crappie were caught using a jig with a spoon near the narrows. Live worms got a few hits but plastics were best. A few people caught decent bass while they were cat fishing with cut baits.
