CRAPPIE ACTION FAIR
/ CATFISH STILL BITING GOOD
Jackie Wayne with another fishing report.
Water temperature is mid 80's. Crappie fishing is a little slow, but
you can still catch a mess of fish. Some crappie are weighting up to a
pound and a half. Crappie are being caught spider fishing with tubes
tipped with minnows or wax worms. They are in the lower Blue Basin
fishing 6 to12 feet deep. In the upper Blue Basin fish in 4 to 8 feet of
water. Bass are slow at this time. Blue Gill are still in shallow water
around trees, stumps and shore line. Bluegill are being caught using
jigs with wax worms or crickets. Catfishing is good with stink bait or
night crawlers in upper Blue Basin. Yellow Bass are doing great with pin
minnows in lower Blue Basin. Look for them striking around shore line.
