Not much has changed since the dog days of summer have arrived. The fishing is slow for just about everything. The bass reports continue to be fair with a decent early and late topwater bite on buzzbaits and tiny torpedoes. During the day, try main lake points and drop-offs with Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics and shakey head worms. The bream bite is fair also. Most bream anglers are fishing in the 4 – 8 ft range close to traditional bedding areas. Both crickets and red wigglers have been best baits. Most anglers are choosing to tightline for the bigger bream but you can catch a few under cork. The crappie has slowed due to the heat but a few are still being caught suspended off the deeper points and structure in 15 – 20 ft using jigs and minnows as either could out produce the other on any given day. A few catfish are being caught late in the evening tight-lining nightcrawler and liver off main lake points and off the pier.
One local angler has been catching a few quality crappie lately. Here's a nice one from this past week.
