With the weather trying to start warming up, water temperatures have been up and down and bass and crappie are on the feed. Bass may generally be found near their normal spawning grounds, holding in deeper water adjacent and coming up on the flats to feed once the sun warms the water. Crappie are schooled up in 4-6 feet of water adjacent to cover.
The bass should be feeding on shallow points, as well as the back ends of creeks and coves. Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, jig ‘n pig and plastic grubs are the preferred baits.
Crappie fishing is great, around submerged structure in the creeks. Many of the fish are exceeding two pounds.
Stripers are still being caught on points in most of the major creeks. Live and cut shad are working well.
