BASS

Bass can be targeted in deeper water where structure is present. Feeder creeks or ledges along the main creek channel should be holding fish. Try the shallow water in the coves, a few fish have been harvested lately in the 1 to 3 lb range.  The cooler weather this week may push them deeper for a few days.  The bass bite has been very good over last week with crank and spinner baits  in 6 to 8 ft. of water.

 

CRAPPIE 

Crappie will be in deep water this time of year along creek channels and deep structure. Fish may be anywhere in the water column so try multiple depths until fish are located. Trolling in these areas with minnows or jigs are very productive ways to catch crappie during the early part of the year.  There are no current reports at this time.

CATFISH
          
Catfish can be targeted in deep water around creek ledges and structure. Worms, liver and blood baits will be best choices for baits.  There are no current reports at this time.

BREAM
    
Bream may be found in deeper water off of points and around structure. Tight lining on the bottom with crickets and worms will be the most effective method for harvesting good size bream this time of year.  Most satches are being made in about 8 to 10 feet of water. Bream catches have increased over the last week  Look for it to pick up even more with a few sunny days.
