Bass

The Large Mouth bite has been good the last few days. Seems to be an early morning to mid morning bite. Frogs in pockets have been working well. We have also been catching some nice Lips on Sinkos working these in and around logs and rocks. The Spotted Bass bite has been great the last week or so. We have been catching most of our fish on a 25 to 30ft bottom. Underspins tipped with Arkansas Shinner flukes seem to be working best.  We have caught some really big Spots trolling Lucky Craft Staysees 90’s while trolling for trout. This pattern should continue for the next few weeks as we head into September. 

Trout

The Brown Trout bite has been a little tough lately. We have caught a few fish trolling mid lake on spoons. I have been using Luhr Jenson Locos #2 spoons from my archive collection. Any color spoon should work this time of year. Catching these fish early in the morning at daylight seems to be the ticket. 
Yellow Perch

The Yellow Perch bite on!  These fish seem to be everywhere in the lake this year. We have caught some healthy 14 to 16inchers in the last few days. Look for the Perch in 15 to 20ft of water close to structure especially grass. Panfish jigs seem to work good this time of year.
