Water Elevation: 361' ( 359' Summer pool)

Largemouth Bass are at the peak of their spawn! With the water being a little high, good numbers of quality fish are being caught by flipping shallow bushes and trees. If you're a fan of flipping you need to get down here now!
Notes on Action: Largemouth Bass action is GOOD.
What to Use: Okeechobee craw colored soft plastics rigged Texas or on a jig will catch 'em.
Where to Fish: Fish are being caught from 15' to 1' deep on the main lake and in the back of bays.
Notes on Action: The Crappie spawn is mostly over and the bite is tough.
What to Use: Blue/white jigs and minnows.
Where to Fish: Still catching some quality fish on mainlake brush 10' to 25' deep. Late spawners.
RED EAR / BLUEGILL
Notes on Action: Shell Crackers and Bluegill are just starting to bed. A couple of warmer nights and it'll be time for some great action.
What to Use: I like to use spider jigs tipped with a wax worm. Night crawlers, crickets, red worms, or beetle spins will work.
Where to Fish: Shallow graveled banks 1' to 6' deep.
Notes on Action: Good action on Channel Cats.
What to Use: Night crawlers work well.
Where to Fish: Rocky banks.
Notes on Action: Good action can be found.
What to Use: Inline spinners or minnows.
Where to Fish: Mainlake gravel points 10' to 20' deep.
