Black Bass: Now that the spawn is over bass can be caught in the shallows feeding on shad for the first couple of hours or so. Once the shallow bite slows down the best pattern is to fish submerged roadbeds, pond dams and points in 8’–12’ depths. Plastic worm rigs, Texas and Carolina rigs are both good choices to use. The edges of boat docks are another good bass fishing area.
Crappie: Crappie action has been good at this time and should continue until the first part of summer. Minnows and small crappie jigs fished around bridge pilings and brush piles in 12’-20’ depths is your best pattern at this time.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: This is a great time of year to troll small pet spoons behind deep diving Crankbaits to catch and locate these fish. They can be found and caught on the main lake humps and points in 15’-25’ depths. If these fish are located along the bottom, I will bounce slab spoons to trigger a strike.
Catfish: Early morning hours until noon is when the action is best. Baiting up areas near creek and river channels or under the 1097 Bridge should bring in some good action. Dip baits and chicken livers are both good bait choices.
