I've been fishing for Largemouth, Smallmouth, Yellow Bass,Crappie, Bluegill, and Catfish lately. I've caught some of all of the above, but overall the bite has been slow, except for the Blue Cats. Right now and for the next month is the best time of year to pattern Blue Cats. It is common to catch 30 to 60 nice eating size "Blues" in a 4 hour trip.
The weather has been pleasant and it's a good time to enjoy ourbeautiful lakes.
LARGEMOUTH BASS: Finesse worms fished around shallow wood has been most productive for me lately.
BLUEGILL: Split shot night crawlers around brush, stumps, grass, and vertical structures will get a nice mess of gills.
YELLOW BASS: Catching Yellow Bass on spoons, spinners, and minnows around brush on shallow flats and on deep ledges.
CRAPPIE: Jigs and minnows are producing some nice Crappie when fished around brush in 8' to 20' of water.
CATFISH: You can catch Channel Cats almost anywhere. Blue Cats congregate in deep water and readily take shrimp, night crawlers, hot dog, or whatever special concoction you like to use.
