Surface water temps are in the low to mid 80’s. The bass bite is fair to good one day, then slow the next. It only took 7.67 pounds to win the Sunday evening fruitjar tournament (3 fish limit). Most anglers continue to target deeper structure and cover in 12 – 25 ft of water. Those trying to catch fish deep are throwing spoons, jigs, C-rigged and T-rigged plastics as well as drop-shots and shakeyheads, and deep diving crankbaits. Some anglers are still finding fish shallow in and around the hydrilla beds. These anglers are using Texas-rigged worms, weedless swimbaits, and spinnnerbaits. The crappie bite has slowed down considerably, but some anglers are still catching some fish around the deeper brush tops in 15 – 25 ft of water. Reports of catfish being caught in the divide cut are starting to come in. Most are running jugs with cut bait and whole shad.
