Crappie can be found in the early morning. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners.
Catfish are biting more frequently as the lake heats up. Chicken liver and cut mackerel are both highly productive baits. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that does well with the catfish.
