Bass fishing has slowed some lately.  Soft plastics in 8 - 12 feet of water have been the most productive lures.  Quite a few big bass have been caught over the last couple of weeks: four 8 pound bass, a 10 pounder, a 9 pound bass and an 11 pounder have all been caught recently.  See below...

Above: 9 pounds

Below: 11 pounds 2 ounces



Bream fishing is fair.  Crickets and earthworms are the best baits.

Some nice Redear Sunfish caught recently.



Crappie fishing is slow.  Minnows are best in 10 to 12 feet of water.

Sue Thornton and the new record crappie for Lake Calling Panther at 2.2 pounds.




The catfish bite is fair.  Anglers using large minnows and cutbait are having success.
