The edges of humps, flats, and points have all produced steady action. The common theme seems to be the outside edge of the weed lines, and it has been common to catch a variety of species each outing. Fishing the spinner rigs at 1-1.7 MPH has been the
Panfish have been the most consistent bite as of late. Crappie and bluegill both have been cooperating very well on a plethora of different lakes. 8-12 feet of water with bobbers and live bait, or beetle spins fixed with a plastic both have been working quite well. Covering water casting plastics or trolling beetle spins typically will help you find where the majority of the fish are located.
The bass fishing is really in full swing now. There are ample of bass in all areas of the lakes now. There are still plenty of fish shallow to be had near the lily pads, bulrushes, and cattails. Frogs and plastic worms have been the best offerings in less than 5 feet of water. There are also plenty of bass out on the deeper structures as our water temps have reached their summer peak. A ned rig or a jig worm both can yield good action and some plus sized bass.
