Also several folks have reported that most Chartreuse or Chrome / Black Medium diving crank baits are catching Walleyes as are the good old basic end line spinners…

White Bass are still hitting very good most everywhere.. particularly around Kettletop, McRae Canyon, and now moving into the Damsite area.

The Crappie are hitting very good also along the east side anywhere with structure or trees.. if you go hunting for the Walleye, you will catch your share of the Crappie also..

Some medium size stripers have been showing up also..

The tournament anglers have been catching larger than average Black Bass along the main lake points.

Fishing is very good most every were on all species.. so if you are not catchin’ fish.. do something different.. don’t keep doing the same thing in the same spot.

Morning and evening bites are the best. Live bait is the sure thing..We have plenty of Shiners & Fatheads..

We will have the over sized cinnamon rolls on Saturday Morning. Dont miss em’

whom ever sent me a picture a few weeks ago.. I lost it.. please re-send it..

Tell mama that the honey-do list is gonna have to wait..load her up and come see us..
