Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motorboats to seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
The bass bite has been good with small to medium sized bass being reported. The bass can be found near structure and respond best to crawdads, shad raps, or dark colored plastics.
Low light conditions for most of the week contributed to some nice crappie fishing. Miles Palmore of San Diego nearly limited out Sunday morning catching a total of twenty one crappie in Boat Dock Cove using shiners. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught on crappie jigs or live golden shiners.
Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Regrettably, the Wohlford Catfish Derby will not be held this year due to scheduling difficulties. Look for the derby to return next year and to be better than ever. Lake Wohlford cats enjoy chicken liver and cut mackerel. Carp are visible spawning in the shallows.
