Water temps are still slowly rising and more fish are starting to push shallow. The bass bite is good as it took 22 pounds to win a local charity tournament there this past Saturday including one largemouth that topped the scales at 11.58 pounds. Target transitional areas leading to the shallow flats and the backs of the hollows with spinnerbaits, swimbaits, jerkbaits, and rattletraps. Texas and Carolina-rigged plastics may produce the bigger bite or a more bites if you feel the bite is slow. Look for more fish to move shallow as the water levels begin to come up. The crappie anglers are still coming out in numbers right now. Some crappie are being caught close to shallow cover in Ashcraft and Mcdougal.  Most are still pre-spawn but look for that to change over the next week or two as more fish will move shallow. Any standing timber in less than 10ft of water should be holding fish. Jigs seem to be producing more bites right now, but let the fish dictate your tactics. The catfish anglers are slowly starting to showing up in the canal above Crow's Neck. Most are fishing liver and nightcrawlers and having some success.

One angler caught a trophy largemouth that weighed over 11 pounds this past weekend.
