Water Temps Are Much Better For A Mid Day Bite

The algae bloom is basically gone but the water clarity isn’t back to normal quite yet. Water temperatures are getting much better for even a mid day bite. Crappie were caught mid afternoon on small jointed bass lures. Bass are going for black or motor oil colored senko’s, live worms, and poppers. Catfish have slacked off a little but are still being caught on frozen cut baits. Tons of bluegill for the kids just use a float and a live worm close to shore.
