The Bite Is On!
With this recent warming weather patterns we have been catching lots of largemouth bass and a few nice sized Smallmouth bass in the shallow approximately 2-8 ft depth range, As warming water continues the schools will finish with spawning they will be gathering back together up along the weed lines in 7-8 ft. Iíve been starting to see them showing up while casting a split shot/night crawler or a wacky rigged Yum Dinger. Green pumpkin or blue flack has been working good .

Crappie fishing has been getting better. Most of the catching has been in 6-8 ft of water next to the weed line. Casting small jig/plastics like mini mite or tube jigs has been producing.

Bluegills are in the shallows in 2-8 ft of water. The channels are still holding a lot of small fish with a few quality fish mixed in. But, you need to move around to find the bigger fish. Wax worms or small red worms fished with a bobber are producing most of the action.

Walleye fishing has been fair to good. For hands on angling during the day a live bait rigs like a 1/8 to 1/2 oz lindy walking sinker has been productive, also controlled drifting around shallow structure along the outside weed edges with a split shot/hook.

Hope to see you on the water.
