Largemouth bass are catchable by working spoons and spinnerbaits in 20-25 feet of water on dropoffs, in the lower end. The sun in the afternoon is bringing them up on rocky points to feed. Jig 'n pig and fat plastic grubs are the ticket.

Largemouth bass may be caught in 3-4 feet of water on Speed Shads and Poe's RC3 crankbaits. A stop-and-go retrieve is working best. Crappie are hovering around deep brushpiles. Vertical jigging minnows over the brushpiles will produce the better fish. Striper fishing is slow.
