Crappie:  The Crappie are beginning to pick up.  One fisherman had the limit this morning trolling jigs in 12-16 foot of water.  The best color was acid rain, Bubblegum, and blue chartruse.  Most were caught in the flats close to trash.

Bream/Shellcrackers:  The bream and Shellcrackers are biting pretty good.  Most are caught on crickets and worms for the shellcrackers.

Bass:  Several large bass have been caught the last week.  One fisherman had one close to 10 pounds on a Zoom Worm.

Catfish:  Anywhere and everywhere on the lake.
