~~The boat launch parking lots have been packed the last few weekends. People are fishing for a little of everything and some are just enjoying the warm weather and the lake.

Bass are moving out to their summer hideaways with the water level dropping and the water temperature rising. We are catching them with Strike King 6XD and 10XD crankbaits. The ole Carolina Rig is producing too. Most of them are on ledges that top out from 8 to 16 feet deep.The big hybrids have been jumping on the big crankbaits too. We're also catching them on jigging spoons.Crappie are also moving out deeper and being caught on minnows and jigs around brushpiles.

Recently I have seen some huge shellcracker that were caught on live worms around grass and sand. I've never seen any that big come out of this lake.Catfish are still biting. Do they ever guit? Some are caught jugging while others are caught with reel and rods.Its getting that time of year to cover up from the sun and watch out for those pop up thunderstorms!
