Yesterday we caught Largemouth Bass, Yellow Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Lake Perch, and Sauger. The bite was a little slow overall but frantic in short spurts. We caught fish on both artificial lures and live bait. All these fish came from fishing 10' flats with a little wood on them in the middles of bays, backs of bays and off the secondary channel of the main lake. The other day I saw largemouth Bass and Catfish busting big shad on the surface.
One thing's for sure: the fish are moving around in schools of mixed species, and you're not goings to catch them if you don't go!
LARGEMOUTH & SMALLMOUTH BASS:
June bug lizzards, green pumpkin biffle bug, spinners, spoons and top waters are all producing.
Catching Crappie by casting jigs (glimmer blue) and vertical fishing minnows.
Spoons, spinners and minnows will catch a good bunch of them.
This is one of the best times of the year to catch Blue Cats. Fish 40' to 50' deep off the river channel with night crawler,
shrimp, hot dog or your own favorite concoction for good action.

Captain Kirk, out!
