As the dog days of summer set in, the bite for just about everything has slowed down. The bass reports are fair. Most fish are biting on soft plastics rigged either Texas/Carolina-rigged off deep points and deeper off shore structure. A few anglers are throwing topwater lures during the early morning and evening hours with some success. For bream, both boat and bank anglers are targeting laydowns around traditional bedding areas. Most anglers are using tightlined redworms in 5 – 10 ft of water. The crappie anglers are still having a little luck fishing deep tree tops and off shore structure in 18 – 20 ft of water. Both jigs and minnows are getting a few bites. The catfish reports are fair with most catches coming on worms and liver fished 12 – 20 ft of water with a sandy bottom and around tree tops. Most of the catfish action is coming in the evening hours around sunset.
