Anglers are catching few bass between 2-5 pounds. The bass are in the 20-30 ft range. Drop shotting purple, green, and pink colored plastics works best for catching bass. Also try using bluegill pattern tackle to lure them in. Senko’s and creature baits are also the go-to bait! Hannah Nievan, John Nievan and Cynil Nievan caught some nice bass this week!
There have been no reports of anglers catching striper. Try using cut bait, and bluegill look alike lures since they have been going after the little bluegills all over the lake.
Anglers have been catching many catfish between 4-5 pounds! Stink bait, cut bait and night crawlers work best for catfish.
