Largemouth bass can be caught on in the shallow spawning flats approximately 2-5 ft depth range. I’ve been casting a Texas rigged or Wacky rigged Senko. Green pumpkin or blue flack has been working. Live bait rigs either weightless or split shot rigged night crawlers have been very effective. The past week a couple of walleyes and quite a few smallmouth were caught pitching those same sandy areas in 4-5 ft of depth while experimenting with leeches
With the warming water temps crappie fishing has been getting better. Most of the catching has been in 6-8 ft of water next to the weed line. Both bobbers or Casting small mini mite or tube jigs has been producing.

Bluegills are in the shallows in 2-3 ft of water. The channels are holding a lot of small fish 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 controlled drifting around shallow structure Fishing in the shallows is very good. The fish are all pre-spawn. The bass, bluegills and crappies are for the most part in the shallows near hard bottoms has been producing. Slow trolling crank baits like a flicker shad or walleye divers either straight lined or with a planner board parallel to mail lake breaks has been producing.

Hope to see you on the water.
